  • Need Nickel Plating (small job) in NYC (could use mail)

    I have approximately 80 large buttons (approx. 9/10 of an inch in diameter) and 50 small buttons (approx. 6/10 of an inch in diameter) that I need to have nickel plated. The buttons are made of pewter and are reproductions of 18th century military buttons, so the have a design on the button face (3 feathers in a crown and the number "23"). These buttons are worn on a reproduction uniform and need to be regularly polished. I would like to not have to polish them anymore (besides the pewter does not polish well) and I understand that nickel plating would do the trick. I would remove the buttons from the clothes for the plating, but you should assume that these buttons are tarnished in providing a quote. I want a high shine, low maintenance, durable finish -- can you help me? If you can, please send your price, estimated time to complete the job, and a description of the services that you would provide (I don't know much about plating but am in the process of watching the training videos on the Caswell site) to me at "[email protected]". I anticipate that this would be a one-time job for me, but there are hundreds of other reenactors who might be interested if the results are good and the price is right.
