|Peruvian Diplomat's Coat Button, BM Extra Fein. 22 mm, Brass. These are a unique find! They were worn on the uniform of Jose Carlos, a Peruvian diplomat stationed at several places around North America. He served as Consul General of Peru at Vancouver, B. C. from 1942-1948. After Mr. Carlos and his wife passed away, these were inherited by his brother-in-law, and were purchased directly from him. These are very special due to the documentation and history. I have only 6 of these remaining.
|Czechoslovakian Railroad, BM non-verbal star. 24 mm, Glass, one piece with embedded metal shank. The bronze-colored luster covers this button on both the front AND the back. It has a couple nicks - one at about 6:00 on the inner rim of the face, and a couple on the back edge. However, ALL are under the luster, so were done at the factory during manufacture.

|I originally thought these to be Canadian General Service Buttons, but can find no reference to confirm this, and no longer feel this is the case. I believe these are too cheaply made.
I no longer have the style with the beaver, but have 2 that say Canada, with the crown above (just like the one shown, but without the beaver). One has polished anodized front, with floral backmark, second has Brass front, white metal back.
