    Have you already contacted the National Button Society. Maybe if you sent one of them a pic, they may do the research for you....

    Thanks. I did fire off an email to them this morning actually. I am sure they receive all sorts of email from people looking for information however, and although it would be nice to get a response, I am not holding my breath.

    Need to follow this one but certainly a banner find / W&E Best I'd say if it turns out to be so rare.

    Congrats
