    Top set are German and I believe from a civil official's uniform. The bottom set appear to be AH but that's about all I can say.

    In my opinion, undoubtedly that are Austrian buttons.
    The shield has the "Doppeladler" the Austrian two-headed eagle. Also one of them, as we can see in the back, was made in Budapest.
    I have one just bought as souvenir at the Military Museum in Vienna a few years ago. They sell for a few cents.
    As the Austro-Hungarian Empire disappeared with defeat in the WWI, we know that it can not be later than 1918.
    I would say that it is a military button of the Austro-Hungarian army of the WWI.
    Best regards
