It all depends on your budget and the time you are able or willing to spend on searching.

Hi Mick,

I wished I had just gone for Officer’s gilt buttons when I took up buttoneering and it wasn’t that I wasn’t warned about the delights of the shiny variety. I have a number of swaps in Infantry, YeomanryLondon Regiment and cavalry if you have likewise just PM me, cheers and good luck, Dean.
