The L&B has the opportunity to have a batch of uniform buttons made as exact replicas of the original 25mm diameter version.
As well as being a very attractive and collectable item, they will also add the finishing touch to Guards, Porters, Drivers, Firemen, Station Masters and other staff uniforms.
The buttons will be die-stamped - manufactured in two-parts - the back is a stock standard size produced from existing dies/tools. The base metal is a copper alloy so that the button can be finished in an aged-effect nickel electroplate.
The buttons will be sold in sets of 6. The approximate cost is expected to be around £25.00 per set.
As we would like to have an idea of the likely demand – please email either the shop at Woody Bay or Peter Miles of your interest together with the number of sets of buttons you would likely buy - we can then place the order accordingly.
These will look more in keeping than the current SR buttons that were all that was available so far - another step forwards towards creating the complete L&BR ambiance!
