3 " STAR WARS PIN BACK BUTTONS (FACTORS)

Post by ourchickenshack on Thu Apr 09, 2015 10:47 pm

Star Wars Factors / Star Novelties Pin Back Buttons

1977 Twentieth Century Fox Film Corp. / Factors Etc Inc. Image Factory Inc. ( USA )

Click on any of the photos below for full size image :

Actual Size :  3 " Diameter

The backs of the buttons look like this :

[200][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][/200]


[400][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]  [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][/400]


It would appear that most , if not all , of these 3 " buttons can actually be found in a couple of slight variations . The copyright stamps are found with 2 print style variations and the actual photo quality (color / sharpness) is different as well .

Several paired examples of the copyright and photo quality variations we have found are shown below  ...


C-3PO

[400][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][/400]

These 2 C-3PO pins are probably the easiest to see the difference in the copyright print . The actual letter size appears the same but the spacing between the letters is wider on the button that is laying on top ...

I have no idea if the buttons were ever originally available this way or if the bags are homemade  scratch

SCOTTISH STAR WARS PIN BACK BADGES

Post by Commander Clint on Fri May 29, 2015 10:59 pm

Scottish Star Wars Pin Back Badges

1977 Twentieth Century Fox Film Corp. Bennett Associates of Glasgow (Scotland)

Click on any of the photos below for full size image :


[700][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][/700]


Actual Size :  2 1/8 " Diameter


[300][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]  [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][/300]

[300][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]  [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][/300]

[300][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]  [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][/300]

The Copyright information and the backs are the same on all the badges pictured above :

[300][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][/300]

[300][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][/300]


The next badge doesn't have any copyright markings at all , however , it is identical in size , color scheme and the style of the back is the same as the 6 badges ...

May The Force Be With You

[700][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][/700]


According to SWCA :

"Although there is no manufacturer indicated on this pin back , early merchandising lists from the UK attribute the production of badges to Bennett Associates of Glasgow."

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]


I wonder if it is a UK version of the Blue Theatrical Promotional buttons that [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] showed us earlier in this thread ?









Here's another button that has a similar " Star Wars " print to the ones above but it is about 1/8 " larger and the back is not the same style confused

I can't see any markings or writing at all ...

The diameter is 2 1/4 "

[700][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][/700]

Anyone know more about this series - date , manufacturer , etc  ??

possible homemade or bootleg ?

The backs and copyright information are identical on all the buttons in this series :

Please note that there are quite a few other buttons in this series but we have not put much research into them yet . In fact , the only reason they have been added here is to try and help other collectors identify the year these were made . When I originally saw these on Ebay and purchased them I thought they might be from the 1977 to 1985 time frame but discovered that they are quite a bit more recent once they arrived and I could actually see the dates .

haha, I was watching a button from one of our eastern provinces, Nova Scotia I think.  It was another local to them, radio station button CHOZ FM.  Must have been the fad at the time. Very Happy

Maybe you can find some info here on all the other buttons you found.rockon

No copyright markings at all  scratch



This pin back badge is approximately  2 1/8 "  x  1 1/2 "

It is made of plastic and marked LFL .

It is most likely a licensed pin but we're not sure of the Year or manufacturer  sos



These Buttons have no markings at all ...

They could be anything as far as we know banghead2

Homemade , bootleg or actually licensed ?


Here's a couple 3 " buttons we can't identify :

[600][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][/600]

They're  3 " diameter like the 1977 Factors buttons but there isn't any copyright info or any other print on them at all scratch



Here's a few more buttons that we're pretty positive are "Home Made" . They are still pretty cool and , from the aged look and wear , were most likely made in the 80's scratch

The Ben Button is 2 1/4 " Diameter and the others are 2 1/8 " Diameter :

Been working on this thread for a few weeks off and on What a Face

Quite a few new additions and related paperwork added , some photos reworked and spliced together and rearranged the posts a bit to try and group stuff chronologically Very Happy

Check out page 1 to see the changes ...


Also updated the post directly above with a few more unidentified buttons I have come across that we could use help with if anyone has seen any of them before sos
