V for Victoria and 'V' for Victory buttons
'V' for Victoria. There were two periods when buttons were rife with 'V' designs: first during Victoria's reign, and later at the end of World War II when the 'V' stood for Victory. The first one shown here dates 19th century, ('V' for Victoria) engraved brass with cut steels..a double 'V'. The others are World War II ('V' for Victory) 2 are plastic and 2 metals..notice the Morse Code.
