In search of ancestry of a button
I’m a renown researcher of international uniform buttons and have various international contacts.
Recently, a colleague had asked me to help identify a button that he had just added to his collection. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to help but when I researched the motto; Humata Hukhta Huvarshtaat, located on the scroll at the bottom of the button, I found that it has a strong connection with Zoroastrianism. I can add that the button is of brass/copper and made in England.
Any information on by whom and when this button was worn, or any other details, are much appreciated.
