old Buttons, pre-CW site

Today I found some buttons in an area that I have previously found a great seal military button that was dated to approx 1860 according to the back stamp since they changed every several years. I went back and found another one like it but I also found several others including a flat button the size of a modern US penny but thicker. It is smooth on the obverse and says "Rich Gold Colour" on the reverse and has a floral design on the reverse as well. I found a couple other newer ones(post 1900?), one says "Market Brand" and has an unknown picture in the center. The other says "Pace Maker" and has a picture of a horse head in the center.

I would also like some suggestions (age and 'what is it'??) on the little pin with the triangle shape It is enamel W/ EFU and PIC OF KEY, SCALE & HAND SHAKE. It is complete and still has the pin on the back. I googled it but the only match I found someone was selling one years ago and the pic is gone now. Heres their link http://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/lot-of-7-vintage-enamel-pin-screwback-pins

The pin is what I am clueless about and the flat button I would like info on.

Thanks for your 2 cents!! :detecting:

Yeah, its been a year to the day since the last BUMP...get over it. LOL

I have finally found another pin like this on Ebay but the seller also has no idea what it is. After so long and only seeing two examples, it must be rare. Anyone recognize this emblem?

I think the pyramid, scale, key, and handshake are Masonic symbols, all of which are on the pin you found.

I think EFU is " Equitable Fraternal Union" .
