Texas Star Pewter Button, 1″, 181
Blue Frog gave me this metal that was excavated and said I should make a button from it. He did not know of any in existence. It is a true duplication of the metal. The size of the 181 L is ONE inch. It is a bit lopsided as part of the metal was gone from being buried. Texas is tough so we left it as it came to us. Price; 1 to 12 @ .92 each, 13 to 144 @ .84 each and over a gross .74 each.
Then we made a matching smaller version 180 S.
