I believe you have an artifact that is real. I have one of these, along with an card that came with the item explaining what it is. I have seen an image of a much larger horseshoe that came with what appears to be the same card that I have.
There is also a similar small horseshoe that was put out by the Tredegar Iron Works.
I do not have any contemporary evidence of the creation of these artifacts. If anyone has any newspaper articles or advertisements for these or other artifacts, I would appreciate copies. This would help authenticate these items.
