Belt Buckles - Bogus or real?

From: "Laverna"

I have one brass buckle, American Express, Wells Butterfield & Co, with picture of 3 horses pulling a wagon, 3 people in seat of wagon, 3 behind and horses with rider on street behind wagon. Back of buckle says "Tiffany Broadway New York."

Another that says Central & Union Pacific Railroad Co. with horses on front, back has "Property of Union Pacific railroad" and has same mark as the other – "Tiffany Broadway New York."

Both buckles look like brass and are about 3 inches square. ... Are they real or fake?

I have an employee who has a Central & Union Pacific Rail Road belt buckle. He wanted to know if it was worth anything. ...

The best place to check for prices is previous auctions.

There were two recent auctions at which "Central & Union Pacific Railroad Company Belt Buckle" fantasy buckles were sold for $9.99 and $1.99.

A belt buckle was given to me that has on the front "Central & Union Pacific Rail Road Co."

This is at the top of a buckle that measures 2 3/4" x 3 3/4". The rest of the buckle has a picture of cattle being loaded on a cattle car.

Any way to tell how old this is?
