    Most appear to be period US items, except for the two buttons in the middle
    of the second photo - these are commercially made. I think there are some
    foreign navy buttons in there too !

    Not bad..........

    Most of the round buttons with the eagles are regular US army issue. The ones with the anchors are navy. The large eagle comes from an enlisted man's cap, and is missing the back piece. The buttons with "US" and artillery cannons are dogs. The red ribbon is for Good Conduct. They all appear to be real, and are most likely period. You have a pretty good haul there.
