Default Old ?? african shield

Hello dear members,

I please need the advice of african connaisseurs !

I reserved this ethiopian shield,
not my area of collection but I find it
really nice with his decorations made of coins and nails,

The question: it was sold as an antique one made with hippo leather.

It's nice but is ( TOO MUCH ?! ) in good conditions...
the coins are coming from all country: germany, french african and arabian countries...

So I'm not sure it's an old one...

For the central deco coins, I could read that one was dating from 1980 so...
Just scrap / recent item ?

or I wonder if the central deco is recently made on an old ( early 20th ?)
shield ?

What about the leather ?...

Kind regards
