Re: E.M. Wool Overcoats

Hi Rich! Very interesting! As I only have one army type, I didn't even notice that some came with different types of buttons! I will have to check my WW2 versus my WW1 as I expect them both to be metal. cool

Re: E.M. Wool Overcoats

Yes, I just compared this morning when I found my US overcoats. The WWI example had darkened brass buttons and the WW2 had bright brass buttons smile
