If anyone has time can you tell me if these are CW Era or reproductions.

The top is a Civil War era box plate. The Eagle I button has an interesting backmark- R&W Robinson went out of business in 1848, but this button looks later. Several sources say their dies, including backmarks, were used by D Evans into at least the 1860s. Hard to tell on the other buttons without better shots of the backmarks. I don't feel any of these are reproductions though, just not sure of the remaining dates of the buttons without seeing the backmarks.
