No idea about authenticity, but if she's real, that's a heck of a deal. Very sought after . . .

I think he was sharing a photo not asking for authenticity . Please read how the rules apply here in situations such as this.

Many "D" guards were hand made or built in the field or by the black smith as they were popular. Some though even carried makers marks. Looks like you have a nice collection. Give me one confederate enfield bullet over 10 -3 ringers any day haha
