Question Unusual Button Shank
Quote this message in a reply
   

Has anyone ever seen a button shank like this one? I tried to find evidence of a broken off shank, thinking this was a quick repair job, but couldn't find anything.

I'm not a button expert for sure, but is it the size of a cuff button? The reason I ask is because the way the shank pretzels you'd almost think it was made to slip in and hold onto another small hole on the inside of the cuff. Just a guess however.

If you find out where it's from be sure and post it. That's very peculiar looking.

I have 3 best friends. Their names are Ace 350 , AT Pro ,  and a Fisher F 75 but I like people too.

Hey ODF, 
I don't think it's a cuff button, it's about the size of a nickle maybe even a bit bigger. I plan to clean the back better under the shank to see if I can find evidence of a broken shank. Thanks for looking at it and giving your thoughts.

Will  do Kajunman, I will be cleaning the back better, a back mark would be awesome. until then I guess it's just from my yard..lol
