The current button has a different clasp design that causes the paper part of the button to get dimpled, even with a padded envelope. Our extravagant duct tape solution was only designed to prevent the buttons from shifting around and scratching each other. The older buttons can handle a lot more abuse.

The rest of the USA packages were sent today, along with all of the Europe and Australia packages.

We are low on packing materials so it will be a week or so until we can send the rest.

Special thanks to ET_ and markr for acting as distributors for their respective continents!

My collection is up to date- The button probably arrived a few days ago, but I was out of town. Many Thanks to Curtis Cooper, Mike, and all the gerbils toiling away in obscurity!

Buttons arrived today in perfect buttoning condition. Thank you very much to everyone who made this possible. You have incited my inner child giddiness and my fiancee's eye-rolling.
I owe you guys a beer should you find yourselves in the Kansas City area.
