Lot of 2 brass military uniform buttons for the Voluntarios of Puerto Rico (1880s). 5.8 grams total, 1" and 1/2" in diameter. A choice pair (rare in this condition), fully intact and brassy, each with clear wording that says VOLUNTARIOS / DE / PUERTO-RICO on front and P. FEU E HIJOS / MADRID Y BARCELONA on back around the loop, small but poignant reminders of an almost legendary Spanish royalist militia formed in 1812 to protect Puerto Rico from pirates and other enemies.
