The Beatles music Buttons
These buttons are pictured in the "About Buttons" button book by Peggy Ann Osborne..she quotes: The author is unaware of any commercially manufactured Beatle clothing buttons that show The Beatles themselves-probably because clothing buttons were not something their management thought to license, preferring to stick with items of broader interest to their teen audience. Still, one enterprising button manufacturer found a way to "cash in" on the mania without having to pay licensing royalties; these buttons, dating from their first American tour in 1964, have a rubus design-'beetle music' (look closely.) They were available in the 2 sizes.
