Month by month, we obtain buttons that are particularly unusual or different in some way. They are special because of their sheer quality or eccentricity of design. In every way, they are buttons to admire and cherish - possessing that indefinable "wow!" factor. Prices range from £10-£100 depending on design and scarcity. Such buttons are difficult to find but easier to sell!
