Trouser Buttons

As can be seen by the similar design on these three cards, this was a classic button for trousers. The flat border meant the material flap over the fly would sit smoothly, whilst the sunken centre saved the thread from rubbing and wearing.

These were only advertised from 1947-8. The maker is unknown.

This is the first example of “Superior Plastic Buttons”, but the font used (note that P in Plastic) is the same as used on cards of “Plastic Buttons” as seen on the Mystery page. http://www.austbuttonhistory.com/mysteries-please-help/#Australian_Made_by_whom

Early 1950s Beauclaire example.
