Default Spur buttpate..Real or Repop?

I'd like to ask that those more knowledgeable than I take a look at this spur buttplate. Is this an original or reproduction? Evidence at the bottom it was either fitted to a stock or is a repop from one that has been. Thanks All.

It is a reproduction.

Spur is added on, toe has been repaired, poor definition, and too much mold release was used. Those are some of the clues to look for. PS when I say the spur was added on, I mean on the master which is used to make the mold.

The shininess of the material is a dead giveaway as to it being a modern reproduction.
