I've started doing some leatherworking, mostly baldrics and belts and simple things so far. I'm trying to decide what type of buckles I should get to put on my baldrics. As I'm sure we all know, larger size buckles are a pain to come across, but I've found a couple resources. In your opinions, would you like to see a more rustic blacksmithed buckle or a shiny brass one? I'm not sure which would be more period correct as I'm sure there were people making brass buckles but also blacksmiths making this type of thing. I'm attaching a couple pictures of the options I'm looking at, any advice would be helpful!
