Default Can anyone identify these?

Hi All,

I've been going through a couple of boxes and seem to have aquired some buttons without realising.

I don't really collect them apart from one or two specific ones so I was wondering if anyone can identify any of these ones for me? I'm guessing naval of some type for most.

The last photo showing the makers mark is the back of the button with SB on the top.

Thanks a lot,

Michael

Thanks very much, is it from a particular era or still in use now?

This one is pretty farm fresh, almost looks dug up.

The second one is a stock design if it has a high quality back. If it has a tinned back it is a fashion button.
The fourth one is German navy. A picture of the reverse will help to date it.
The name of the last one has been named by collectors as Siemens Brothers, a cable company.

.... the Wild Cat crest has a Scottish feel about it. It would be a livery button probably.
