I know this isn't projectile related but wanted yalls opinion. I know its best to stay away from eBay, but this one looks pretty good to me.

My advice is to save your money.  If you want a real one for a few hundred more, drop me a line and I'll connect you to someone who has a couple righteous ones.  There are a few bad signs about this one, and if one gives off any hints of uncertainty, I suggest you wait for one you can feel solid about.

 Yeah, eBay not the place to buy Confederate plates.   Agreed,  pay some extra from a legit dealer and sleep well at night.

Confederate plates seems to be one of the most counterfeit item in Civil War collecting.   Since I own zero Confederate belt plates I wouldn't know where to begin.   I agree with the others, tread carefully when purchasing one.   Wasn't it pointed out that even Steve Mullinax was fooled?  Considering what a prolific digger he was and the sheer amount of relics he handled that doesn't bode well for novices like myself.

Inspired by this thread no doubt, I acquired this one last week right before a certain someone on this forum took me up on the offer above and Hoovered up two others from the same source!
