This is a sample of my vintage button collection. I get most of my buttons in lots from eBay. I only do lots with buttons on cards. I dont have the time to sift through a jar of moldy buttons. You soon get the knack of telling the real 'vintage' buttons from the 'old' ones that were around in the 60s and 70s. A good way is by the price printed on the card. The higher the price, the newer the button.
