Found in a box of sewing stuff and several other unexpected buttons to log into my collection, on the hunt for info for them tonight. What a geek, huh

Firstly I can't really help with the ID (a little modern for my knowledge) but you have tapped into a childhood memory;
Grandma's Button Tin.
I started detecting at about 11 but I probably never imaged I would gain such an interest in Buttons, but I do think that most younger kids do have a fascination with a Button Tin. (almost treasure like)
Something that is dyeing out with the mend & make good generation, & being replaced with the wasteful throw away generation.
Anyways went off topic, but it just sparked a good memory.

The best thing about spending the weekend with my Nana was...diving into those button tins and with my dads dye cast toys from when he was a kid. It disgusts me how fast generation lazy and careless has taken over this world. I raised my two daughters, (21 & 23 now), to appreciate everything they have been given and have grown up learning from me. They are proudly, i say, both treasure hunters and have taken the time to appreciate and learn about what is past. Thank you for your response! That...I appreciate also!
