    1814 pre civil war belt buckle Indian war

    Has anyone seen one of these before the exact same thing very rare and how much is it worth, only found a replica and the replica came from Virginia parsley brass and the company owner said he got the copy from a collector 20 years ago and that's all I know besides the Smithsonian having a picture of it.

    Unfortunately, a large number of repro War of 1812 belt plates have flooded the market over the years.
    I'm no expert, I'm just offering my opinion.

    Here's a pic of a 'good reproduction' for comparison.

    "This plate may have been sold innocently at auction, but it's a fake nonetheless.
    It is clearly a modern casting of an original plate... the original was die stamped."

ID:	1670248 I found this off the Mohawk Massachusetts in a slab LED flashing that's probably why it was in such good shape

    Having now seen the back and the 'dug pics', your find definitely looks to be the real deal.
    This is why it's a good idea to include a number of pics and some background info on where you made your find when asking for help with an I.D..

    If this proves to be real... it's certainly BANNER worthy!

    In the book "American Military Belt Plates" by O'Donnell and Campbell, on page 108, plate 164 is as close a match as I can find. It states: "Waist Belt Plate, Common Militia Plate, ca. 1820-1835". The cannon balls under the barrel on each side is somewhat unique and this plate matches that exactly.

    Could you send me a picture of it I'm just wondering if it's the exact thing it has two tassels on each side up top and it has 7 cannonballs on the left six on the right. You said you found it in a book did it show what it was worth.

    Incredible find! And I agree, with the previous comment about taking pics in the field. So many counterfeits out there in all aspects of collectibles. Pics of the relic coming out of the ground surely lend credibility.
    Congrats
