Oval CS Belt Buckle
So I was watching Pawn Stars last night and someone brought in an oval CS belt buckle with a Minie Ball lodged in it. They brought it a specialist to examine the buckle. It was a typical oval CS buckle with a puppy paw back. He examined it and determined that it was a fake.
I don't question that it was probably fake (I'm no expert), but what he said next kind of surprised me. Me said that the Confederate States never issued or wore an oval CS belt buckle! From what I've seen and read, he's incorrect in this statement. Any truth to what he claimed? Thanks! - Jeff
