Has it been ground dug?
My opinions original buckle. Probably ground dug. The seller does not know wherefrom the buckle.
Looks legit to me!..
It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

Thanks for your opinions.
original steel buckle that has been dipped in a phosphoric acid solution in order to take off the rust
It would have been better to avoid such treatment and keep the rusty patina
I bought a buckle and considered. I think a buckle isn't dug out of the earth and not processed by acid. On a buckle reverse side there is a lot of original paint. The buckle face side is cleared mechanically (abrasive).
