Lastest finds (thanks to Robyn):

The Embassy cards show that the same style could be produced for years. The Coronet button and koala are featured below.

Whilst using a  flash shows up the detail, it made the button appear silver.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Have you noticed how many times the Ducks appeared over the decades?  Possibly the earliest was the Rex version circa 1949, then the Beauclaire “Tiny Tots” circa 1954.

Please note that the ‘Tiny Tots’ card is a reproduction my husband photo-shopped for me. The original cards had one colour only sewn upon them.
