    Nice finds. The barber is pretty sweet. Hmm... Can I beat Drew to finding a flying eagle? The front of the button looks like it's WWI period, but the back is bulged a bit. I'd think there would need to be more gilt to be a WWII.

    Thanks MangoAve! I don't know if you'll beat Drew but I surely hope you'll find a FE some day ! Thanks for the information about the button too.
