NV buttons/flanges have only a central (thick) stem.

Buoy bells by whoever have the same.

However Taylors usual type for ringing bells (trebles of higher number rings
are of a flange fitting on (usually) three pillars. (see Elphick, Craft of
the Bellfounder, p.43).


Why should there be a lot? Button or flange headed bells aren't particularly
common. They are generally found on Naylor Vickers steel bells (all of
them), some Taylor bells of the first half of the C20 (generally the trebles
of 12s or 10s), trebles of some G&J higher-number ring, and on Trinity House
buoy bells. Apart from these cases, they are very rare.
