    Default Real or fake?

    I found this belt and buckle in my father in laws stuff that he had picked up at am estate sale. Can anyone tell me anything about it and if it's real or fake? I have researched on the Internet and it looks like it's from the civil war which surprised me.

    Not actually a "Fake" per se...but a modern day repro. The originals were made of Brass.

    I think this is a fake because it makes no sense that he would have a real one and the back of the buckle looks wrong. I'm very new at all this so just trying to learn. Thank you!

    It seems to be a reproduction which makes more sense. Thanks!
