Victorian Antique Metal Buttons

These are my 2 favorite buttons of all time, for now. I found the big one at a yard sale for $1.00. It was rusty and did not look like much. After using a metal cleaner that my husband had it revealed the shiny pivots and the beautiful detailed work on the brass. These buttons are hammered.The photo is a little fuzzy because I could not get a close up. 
The 2nd small button I found in a small can of buttons that I offered the thrift store for the entire lot for $5.00. When I looked through all the buttons I was simply amazed.
