I did some research (net) and found that the button (left) was for work overalls/clothes from the early 20th century.  It is possible, ecause of the mass migration of peasants during that period from Eastern Europe to the factory and mining areas of Western PA, Ohio, that someone returned home to this area with these items...or sent them home.  I've heard not one, but many stories to this effect--guys fed up with the economic situation here so they head out to try their luck in the New World......there is a similat tendency right now too.
Interested how much can be learned from just one small single relic!!!
Thanks to all for the comments!!!
GL+HH!!!

p.s.: the button on the right is from the post '56 (Hungarian Revolution) era, so-called Kádár-period (1957-1989).  Probably from a border patrol tunic.
