I have (finally) carded up (on replica cards) a selection of Beutron Originals, with every colour cabochon and every metallic finish (silver, gold and old gold) that I have. There are 4 sizes: approx 14, 18, 22 and 28 mm diametre. For comparison, I have included details from 1950s adverts and from  vintage cards of buttons. See also the Beutron 1950s advertising page.

22mm in green, burgundy and steel-blue. 18mm mushroom, brown, steel blue, skye blue, navy blue and tan.
