The most interesting find of a local park hunt today that included can slaw, PBR caps, and $1.12 in clad was this Burberry Brit button. I don't have a scale so I can't tell you how much it weights, but it appears to be brass and is heavy for it's size. I know Burberry goes back to the mid 1800's and made British trenchcoats during the world wars, but other than that, I'm not finding much info pertaining to the buttons they used. If anyone knows, I'd greatly appreciate the info!
Thanks for looking and have a great day!
