Very dangerous field for the collector with many fakes now over 40 years old. One really has to specialize and consult with experts, have creditable references to tread in this realm. It seems to me that the prongs may be incorrect for this type and the details of the stamping looks a little less crisp than they should be. I have handled and sold more confederate blades than I ever have the buckles. Buckle and belt plates are much rarer.

Leech & Rigdon style should be completely cast with cast hooks bent into place (no lead filler). Original examples fetch into the 5 figures.

The seller in his description is already distancing himself from it by saying it's out of his expertise. Just because there are many bidders means little. Such a rare buckle that I wouldn't even consider unless those CW experts like it.

He is offering a 14 day no questions asked return policy, so I expect it will be returned in less than 14 days by the buyer.
