Item details

A vintage pair of gold tone shirt or uniform buttons (I not positive what part of the uniform these were usually attached to). They each have a very nice raised eagle, stars, and anchor design. The last two pictures show how they would attach -you pull the pins (bodkins) out, slip them through the shirt/uniform, and then snap the pins back into the middle position to keep them tight. They are marked "THE VIKING HILBORN - HAMBURGER INC. NY" I did not polish them at all so they retain their vintage patina. A hair over 7/8" in diameter.

I sometimes have them in a smaller size:

Zip or postal code

I ship every day -Monday thru Saturday by USPS. If you pay by e-check, I'll ship your item as soon as it clears.

And I always combine shipping for free: when you add multiple items to your shopping cart from my store, you will automatically only be charged shipping on one item and the rest will be free shipping. I also have a Priority Mail upgrade option when you check out for USA purchases.

International Buyers: Once again, as of Jan 17th, 2016, the post office has dramatically raised international shipping rates. Now a 2 ounce package is the same as an 8 ounce package which makes small items very expensive to ship. And obviously I have no control over customs charges which are the responsibility of the buyer.


I accept payment by Paypal and I also accept Credit Cards and gift certificates through Etsy. (Shop owners never see any credit card information.)

Wisconsin residents pay 5.5% sales tax.

Returns & exchanges

I want you to be satisfied. If promptly shipped back to me, I will give a full refund.

Additional policies

Due to the frequency of people buying items reserved for another person which creates an uncomfortable no-win situation, I'm sorry to say that I no longer put items on reserve.
