    Gold does not tarnish so if they still have the same sheen on the high spots and the low spots then they are gold. If the high spots seem bright and the low spots seem darker then they are brass. You could also take some Brasso and see if you can shine them up. If they are gold there will be no change, if they are brass they will shine up and look a lot different. But really, you think they actually used gold on US Army uniforms in WW TWO?

    Despite the fact that we said "the land of milk and honey where streets are paved with gold", buttons are brass.
