Tiny Button ID..

Post by ashjacko » Tue Feb 20, 2018 6:23 pm

Hi all, I found my first button today and it's tiny! My Garrett Ace 250 was on relic mode and the button was around 4 inches down at a small field.

It has a little pattern around it and is domed, any idea please on it's age?

Thanks in advance.

Not sure regarding provenance ... but we get quite a few of these up in yorkshire.
when i say quite a few ... I mean alot, and they give cracking signals.
Many thanks for posting.

This one gave a great strong signal which surprised me when I saw it's size.

At least it proves that your machine is picking up the small stuff. Mind you anything with a hole in it tends to punch above it's weight! ::g

The hub shape in 4 hole button is so automatic sewing machines can centre them better and required less skill.
Patent was granted in 1925 no to say they weren't around a few year before.

Machines working Well if it picking them up ::g
