At first when I started researching I realized I may have some Bakelites in this 10lb box of buttons so I started testing, and testing and testing and I had a small pile that seemed to test positive for Bakelite but after a while of doing it, I gave up.. it just took so much time and it was almost as if there was one Bakelite button out of every 50 buttons. I still am not sure if I am going to sell some of these plastic buttons or not but if I do, it's just going to have to be a mixture of Celluloid, Lucite and Bakelite and the purchaser can figure it out. Maybe they would be better at testing Bakelite than I am.
If you are interested, please feel free to read this Vintage Button Guide. It tells about different buttons, how to test to see what material they are made of and how to clean them properly.
