Thanks for guessing! It's a molded pile of gold colored coins making a paper weight

I believe these are Trade Tokens, used by many cities in the US during and just after the depression. They were good in any store/place of business during the time listed on the coin. They were quite popular in drinking establishments for drinks and also for cigars.

Confederate uniform buttons.

Looks like they might be some type of promotional tokens; maybe a premium of some kind. From the blurry photo it appears that it might be Presidents of the United States that are represented. Back side would have trivial or stats on that particular president.

This is a mass of gold concreted coins from a shipwreck salvage operation.
