    I believe it is civil war, however everything I found did not match it. Does anyone know if this is real.[img][/img]

    It doesn't apear to be a real one. How does the back look? Originals mounted with either a pair of hooked prongs or the earlier ones had a pair of short studs(puppy foot type). Originals would be a thin brass plate with a lead or pewter back fill. The prongs or studs would also be brass. Get me a pic of the back and I can tell you for sure.
