Buttons?

What do you think of these?
Do they look like GPW-era?

Re: Buttons?

Hi Eric, one of the small ones appears to be marked "78".

Cheers, Ade.

Re: Buttons?

The big one looks bulgarian or mongolian.

Re: Buttons?

I didn't see the '78' either.
Now it's obvious.

I wasn't even too serious about this (eBay auction). I just wanted to aquire some button knowledge.
Looks like I did.

Thanks guys! ! ! ! ! :thumbsup
