55+ vintage metal pants buttons.

Made of brass, steel or aluminum, these old buttons were commonly used to fasten boys/mens pants. A variety of vintages but mostly from 1940 and earlier. I see about a dozen that are modern.

These have a very cool industrial, rivet-type look. Brass gold, silver, blue tint and black painted colors. A few have writing on and some have textures or designs.
Many are used, some are not, so there is a wide variety of condition: new looking and a bit worn, but very rust-free. Some have a bar shank across a central hole creating a generous opening; fun closures for narrow necklace cord. Others have the more normal 2 or 4 sew-thru holes.

1/2 and 5/8" (13-17 mm) with just a few a bit bigger. Some match. A big handful of retro metal embellishments.

Found in button tins that have passed thru my hands over the last 18 years. I can't possibly use as many as I have saved.
