I'd appreciate any help identifying this buddha, thanks

This looks Laotian. Lots of SE Asian bronze fakes, but this looks authentic, circa turn of the 20th century, around 1900 or thereabouts.

Thanks Gregory, thought it was older. What makes you think this looks authentic? The base?

The patina looks right. The bottom of the base appropriate wear, which fakes always seem to never have.

Really hard to tell without examining it in person.

It's also one of the lesser copied styles, which gives a higher chance of it being authentic.
