Uniform Buttons

Recommended

US Serviceman, and other official uniform buttons from the US and occasionally from other countries are included in this category.

Identification tips

A uniform button's use and age is principally determined by three characteristics, usually considered together. First the "device" (design) identifies the service or state militia that used it, and generally when it was used. Keep in mind that certain devices were used for many decades, so other clues are needed. The buttons construction also offers a guide to age. Finally, the backmark may not only indicate the manufacturer, but if the manufacturer was in existence for a narrow time period, you can further pin down the likely age and use of a button.
