    Any one have any info on the time period or what these buttons were used for?

    Plain front one piece brass flat buttons were used primarily on civilian clothing - circa 1810-1830.

    It is best as one grows older to strip oneself of possessions, to shed oneself downward like a tree, to be almost wholly earth before one dies.

    The eagle dates it to the 1820s or thereabouts.
