I wonder if it is a European 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 ?

I guess the other possibilities is that it is a bootleg/knock off or even just a fake but I honestly don't feel that's the case . Once again , Any help identifying this button would be greatly appreciated  What a Face

I think this one is on the Archive data base.

"Although there is no manufacturer indicated on this pinback, 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.]

The list on the archive also seems to match the other buttons you have.  I also did a quick google search, and couldn't find much on "Bennett Associates of Glasgow" in 1977.
The only link on the archive with a picture, is the MTFBWY.

Awesome yay

Thanks Clint that certainly solves a good deal of the mystery bowwing

I am guessing this means they were made in Scotland scratch

I updated the post on page 1 with the factory / country info and added the link to SWCA Very Happy

Awesome. cheers

As soon as I saw the MTFBWY button, I knew that I'd seen it before, in another search.  Then the list from the SWCA matched up with the other button images.
Hopefully some of the UK members can tell us more about "Bennett Associates of Glasgow", and what type of company it was, and what other products it put out? popcorn

Very interesting. That white Fett button has a photo of him that I don't recognize from anywhere else. Based on that alone I'm surprised it's not more popular.

I've considered a Darth Vadar Lives button for a while but I couldn't tell if it was legit. I suppose fakes are rare as there isn't much of a financial incentive to making them.

Thanks for the great close up shots, I'll be sure to reference this when making any purchases.

Obviously another licensed Factors button . The diameter is 2 1/8 " .

I have know idea where it was made - possibly Australia but could be from the UK too scratch

James. There is nothing in my magic book on this button.

But I went onto the SWCA, and they have it listed from Australia only. There are two versions of this button. One with a black logo, and one with a red logo. There are 6 buttons, each with a red & black logo, for a total of 12 buttons.

Unknown Pin Backs We Need Help Identifying

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


This small pin is only 5/8 " x 7/8 "

[300][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][/300]
[500][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][/500]
[400][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][/400]
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 .

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

Actual Size : 2 1/4 " Diameter

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]
[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 :
