    This list & pix are VERY helpful in research. Thanx, Bill J.

    Interesting List. Thank you for publishing. Just FYI, AJ Fulks of Whitestown is a modern button produced for the reenactment hobby a few years ago by Andy Fulks of Fall Creek Suttlery.

    I found a jm litchfield brass button in my flower bed.It says made in san fransico. The face has vertical lines with what appears to be the initials SB or SP that turns into a B on the front. Can’t find out anything about it and was wondering if you might know. It appears litchfield went out of business 1906. thanks
