Real or re-pop (1st 3 pics). Came with plate (last 2) found off Rt 11 near New Market. Seller had no idea if the buckle was real.

Looks good to me. It has the thicker prong and the arrows have the beveled edges. The backfill is also not overfilled as is commonly seen on repops. I think you have a nice original belt plate.

Thanks. The plate also came with one other buckle, but it looks far too unconvincing for me to have even posted a pic. Honestly, all I wanted was the plate, so getting a real Buckle with it is a real treat
