China Worksheet - NBS Classifications
This workcard from Button County is in PDF format.
It allows the collector to card examples of the primary back types, body styles, and decorative finishes for china buttons but be aware of the limitations. There is one spot on the card for hollow eye china buttons, for example. There are twenty five different listed hollow eye body styles to choose from. There are 327 listed calico patterns to choose from but only two holes on the card for calicoes. It is a great entry level card for learning to identify non-calico chinas.
