CORRECT ANSWER: FAKE



This strap is an artificially aged fake of modern manufacture. The field is raised relative to the border and the entire strap is much thicker than most original Civil War period pieces. The manufacture is the same as the major's strap shown as item number four. The faker over did himself and created much damage to the field of the strap and the embroidery.
