    According to this, they manufactured military supplies in World War 2. https://www.worthpoint.com/worthoped...ots-hat-jacket

    The hat is from W. & S. Lyon Co. military supplies New York City. The jacket is also missing one of its middle buttons.

    I just bought 15 Great Seal buttons all with different backmarks and noticed something about one. It is marked "Kahn or Kamn Indiapolis" My book says Indianapolis. Is this backmark, missing the "na" the norm? I also got one with "J.C.L. Shabeck/Prov. R.I. Here's a picture of the Kahn(?) and I will post the Shabeck when I get the buttons unless one has already been posted.

    Looks like a good one. It looks familiar but Im not able to find anything on this button but I think its KAHN. I did find mention of Kahn Tailors or Kahn Tailoring in Indianapolis circa about 1930s-WW2. No mention of the incorrect spelling.

    Somewhere on this page is mention of "Kahn Tailor Uniforms, Indianapolis, IN". If its here, the button company may be older than I previously noted.

    How about a "Handy Button Mach Co./ Chicago"? Picture isn't the best. And it is definitely "Kahn/Indiapolis".
