Default Customs and Excise buttons from India, Ceylon, and Pakistan

Good afternoon

As a number of members are interested in items from the Indian sub-continent, Colonial or Commonwealth insignia, and/or uniform buttons, I thought I’d share my Customs and Excise buttons from India, Ceylon [Sri Lanka], and Pakistan. First off - India:

HM Customs Bombay Pre-1901, 25.3mm, Firmin & Sons Ld. London.

HM Customs Bombay Post-1901, 20mm, Firmin’s Ld. London & B’ham.

Bombay Excise, 23.6mm, Bhawoo Kashinath & Co. Bombay.


Calcutta Customs Pre-1901, 19.5mm, Firmin & Sons Ld. London PT 2346.

Calcutta Customs Pre-1901, 16.9mm, Firmin London.

Calcutta Customs Post-1901, 20.8mm, Jennens & Co. London.

Calcutta Customs Post-1901, 17mm, J R Gaunt & Son Ld. London Engd.


Lighthouse Customs 1936-47, 22mm, V & R Blakemore Birmingham.

Lighthouse Customs 1936-47, 17mm, V & R Blakemore.

[Initially maritime safety was a local responsibility (or nonexistent), however it became the responsibility of the Customs Service - buttons also exist bearing “Signal Station/Customs”.]


Customs & Central Excise, 17.4mm, Star House Ludhiana.

Indian Customs Post-1947, 16.3mm, [no backmark].
