This is a very nice example of a no doubt Confederate plate: CS Wishbone. The brass has an as dug greenish patina with dirt still in the corners. The wishbone moves freely but is wrapped tight and looks original to the buckle. It is mostly flat with only a couple small waves that were almost assuredly period. One corner on the back does have what looks to be a digger's kiss where the shove scraped the brass taking off some patina but there doesn't appear to be any copper damage.

All in all a very nice buckle that doesn't cost you the $800 to $900 that a perfect one does and it comes with good provenance.
