BAKELITE & CATLIN TESTING:

Most Bakelite and Catalin buttons exude a characteristic phenol smell which can be detected by rubbing or subjecting to hot water. Before I sell any Bakelite, I always test using a variety of accepted methods to include, hot water, smell and even the sound test for the characteristic Bakelite "clack".

More Info about BAKELITE, CATALIN & CELLULOID:

I have found the research and writings of Julia Pelletier Robinson to be the most scientific and informative. Here is a link to her website and an article about the differences among Bakelite, Catalin and Celluloid as well as other related articles.
