    Tiny treasures - first intact pair of cuff links, navy cuff button

    Found these this afternoon. Still amazed they survived the centuries in a working field joined together. Does anyone have an age for these and the cuff button? The button is a Scoville so I'm thinking mid 19th c. on that. Click image for larger version.

    Found a pair of old cufflinks recently which I believe are from the Victorian Era. Somehow yours looks to be somewhat older? Nice finds!

    I thought there might be something on them and gave them a light tooth brushing but there's nothing there. Part of the surface layer is gone which gives them the look of something on them.

    Did anyone have an idea of age on the cuff links? I want to put them in a case at some point and hope to know the period they were from. Interestingly, I found another partial set today. Just one side and the center link this time, and a different shape.
