They are 'once every 10 years' buttons and not that scarce.
However, since the previous sale prices have tripled.
Good luck!

My collection has buttons from all over the world, including two from Chinese Treaty Ports. The images are for your reference. The buttons themselves are not available.

Shanghai Yacht Club.
I have only seen silver buttons. Some, but not all, are hallmarked.

Hi Gents,

I'm really loving seeing these obscure Colonial buttons. My button interests thus fare have been confined to Shropshire (my home county) and British Militia. But as I also have an interest in Colonial and Protectorate badges, it's great to see these, so keep them coming.

Cheerio,

Roy
