I don't know if you have Smylies book or not but he dates both buttons with the Victorian crown the same 1855 to 1901 (both beaver center & crown center) There are also two King's crown buttons ( both Crown center & beaver center) & these have the same dates 1901 to 1924. What troopw wore which he dosen't say & I don't know, but being general list I imagine they wore whichever one was available at the time. Ray
