I am trying to find a glue that can be removed from antique buttons later if I want to take them out of a display frame. They are fragile. There is a cloth backing inside the frame. I tried removable glue spots and they won't hold the heavier buttons. Some of the buttons are over 80 years old.

I used my glue gun to glue antique buttons around a cheap clock. When the $2 clock died I easily popped the buttons off and re-glued them onto another $2 clock.
Have you tried sticky tac ? it's commonly used for posters and can hold quiet a bit of weight.
Instead of gluing, why dont you just tac them to the cloth backing, just a few stitches should hold them fine, and it will easily remove.

Evaporated canned milk is an excellent glue! My mom has used it for years!

Aleene's No Sew Fabric Glue works very well.
