This tin with buttons has me fascinated! The buttons appear to be old, many look like ivory and mother of pearl shirt buttons. Many are not symmetric like we have now. Some of the buttons appear to possibly be Bakelite, others appear to be from the 1960's! The tin itself I have not been able to find on the internet however because of the markings on the bottom include a net weight I am assuming the 1970's to 1980's. If any one knows more about these items please feel free to enlighten me!
