    Help with Buttons please?

    I have some buttons I need some help with.

    I've searched the internet to no avail trying to date this Wrangler button by the logo. I understand "Wrangler" has been around since about 1943? I thought I had found it on some 70's clothes but the script is a little different on the "g" and "l".
    Note: the script on the button is not "white", that is powder.

    I have not found anything on this "13 Star" button/snap (?) either. Although there are several posted on TNet I didn't find an ID on one. Nana has several but wasn't sure if they were WWI to present or WWII to present. Is it army, navy, marines, etc.?

    Re: Help with Buttons please?

    Yes RR, I dug it at Nana's cousins house. It's marked "sterling", has eagles on both sides. It reminds me of a graduation ring but there are no other markings.
    It's one of my favorites too! Thanks!

    The 13-stars button is classified by the U.S. Army Quartermaster Corps as, "Button, Tack, M-1941" and since 1941 has been used on various military clothing and fabric equipment closures.

    Nice finds Diggerbug, I have a set of coveralls with those buttons, my dad gave them to me a couple of years ago. He used them when he was stationed in Korea during the war.
    So much dirt, so little time....
