Button #2 is either a pewter or "white-tombac" button, dating from the 1700s to the early-1800s.
Button #3 is a civilian Fashion button, from the early-1800s.
"Button" #4 is not a button... it is a horse-harness rosette. Your photo (or scan) of its back shows the nubs where the attachment bar/wire broke off.
