    "WF" Button

    I love finding pieces with fancy initials on them.
    I found this button at the location of an old church in northern Illinois. Do you think it might be Wells-Fargo? A bit far for Wake Forest, and a bit too old for Will Ferrell! Ha.
    How does one go about discovering the long-gone companies stamped onto old buttons?

    Finding out how old it is first . The back of the button has a ton of information to give you

    Post a picture of the back

    Here is a little guide

    As I am finding , In life we begin having the Blissful happiness & the Wonder & innocence of a Child, then fall Quickly, then spend the rest of our lives trying to reach that point where we began ,through Pleasure , Fame, & Materials but Only 'Through true faith in Jesus , can we find Prefect Happiness or true Meaning in our Short lives on this Beautiful Earth filled with both the Light of Pure goodness & The Darkness of Pure Evil.

    This is the back of the button. It’s obviously a 2-piece.

    I don't know what the "WF" button is, but I've found a lot of "WTF" buttons!
