I am still hoping to dig a nice old button, but until I do, I have this card of buttons I picked up at a neighborhood garage sale. I suspect the Brooks Brothers livery buttons (silver tops) might be the best ones of the lot, but I am open to feedback.

In researching these buttons, I stumbled on this great website for livery buttons Livery Buttons Identified. It has a similar one id'ed as "Forbes," but I not sure that is the same (see bottom picture). Any thoughts on age for the Brooks Brothers ones? Is it boar's head or a wolf's head?
