Can be used in standard American half-ball button dies.  We stock aluminum and rust-resistant metals as available from the factory.  Additional sizes and materials may be available by special order - please call.  Button backs sold separately.  We always recommend lining thinner fabric but have found it especially important for flat shells.  Flat shells are considered "low wall" but, as always... ask for samples and test to be sure.
We now offer a limited selection of heat treated ("black") flat button shells for Civil War-era reproductions.  Heat treating is an ancient process correct to the period, and flat shells provide an authentic 1860's profile (especially when paired with 44-wire eyes).  We recommend dry cleaning only for finished buttons made with heat treated components.
