Plate 328  Star oval star plate, lead filled
The originals were generally die stamped and lead filled.  Attribution of the originals is subject to considerable debate and speculation, they may have been issued to Texas or  Mississippi troops, could have been stock plates issued to anybody, and could have been patriotic souvenirs sold after the war.  What is presented here will be repros and fakes of the various star buckles.

F1479      Star oval, manufactured by Yeck Products  

Plate can be configured as either a buckle or boxplate.  This one is overfilled and heavy but not all will be.

Editor note: Plate was obtained directly from Yeck Products, as a sample of their production to be used in this presentation


F1102  Texas oval fantasy
