Yeah, well good luck with that! They are RARE and fetch a premium. You may be able to build up a set piece by piece but it's going to be slow and expensive. Having said that I picked up a near complete set at a militaria fair for a song. I don't think he really knew what he had.

Daf,

You mentioned that your friend is putting together a PAF pilot's tunic and he needed the buttons. I have three id'd Polish Pilot tunics in my collection and only one of the three has PAF buttons. The other two have the standard RAF buttons. With that said I have an acquaintance that has a full set of PAF buttons. Last time I saw them they appeared to be in mint unused condition. If your friend still is interested I do not mind making an inquiry to see if they are available. But as Shide noted, I don't think they'll come cheap. Let me know and I'll check, if there is an interest.

Hi Daf,

No trouble at all. Happy to make the inquiry. Just sorry the bloke wants so much. I think you're right he'd just rather not sell them. I'll keep an eye out for PAF buttons for you.

Do you have a photo or description? Are they silver with a rim? I have a set but I'm unsure if they are PAF or standard Army.
