The default action for buttons is to polish them - this is usually done by left-clicking (see Game controls for more information), and results in the message: "You rub the buttons on your clothes and they become more shiny." This changes them into polished buttons, which are used in Animal Magnetism. This requires level 3 Crafting and grants 5 Crafting experience, and is the only use for buttons.
The archaeological expert says: "I think these are from the nobility, perhaps a royal servant?"

- The examine text refers to a pantomime character based on the real-life Richard Whittington. Interestingly, the shortened form of Richard ("Dick") is censored out by the chat filter in the game. This is also demonstrated by the address label, since players couldn't say "Address" before.
- Buttons were made untradeable after the Trade limit was put in place due to players scamming others by saying the buttons were rare and valuable.
- Strangely, Polished buttons aren't members-only items, while normal Buttons are. The act of polishing turns Buttons into free to play items.
