    Did some research online & think these may be old underwear buttons.
    The small white ones are about 1/2" across. Not sure of the material.
    The green ones are about 1 1/4" across & are about 7/16 th's thick. Do not know what material they are made of. Surface does have a chip on the underside of one & the surface looks like it has tiny cracks.
    Any help is appreciated.

      Thank you.
      Why the size difference ? Did both men & women button their underwear ? Or, the smaller ones worn by a child & the larger ones by adults ?
