Thrift Shop win

On a tour of some of the local thrift shops I found a leather coat. Flawless but for a need for a bit of leather treatment and replacing two of the five buttons.
It's a bit big on me, but I feel with a leather you can get away with a bit bigger.
But it was the quest for the replacement buttons that threw up something interesting. Now it may be the buttons are two a penny in the USA but I've never seen a button with a Great Seal on it. And while I expect CHIPs back in the day had something I sure wasn't expecting to see a jacket with the Great Seal of the State of Oklahoma in a 2nd hand shop in Tipperary, so far from home.
Now of course is the question of how the flying fandangos do I find the two to replace the missing ones. I suspect the remaining three will be removed and replaced. Leaving a query to whomever clears out my stuff post departure of this life. :-D
