Hi, I saw this type 1 jacket recently. I found the info on the tag interesting "rust proof buttons". Was this something special when the type 1 jackets were introduced in the 30s? They're just stainless steel buttons then, right? A number of pants and jackets come with corroded buttons like the Transcontinental Denim Jacket. So if the buttons are corroded it would indicate that the jacket style is from before the 30s?
