This is a consignment item. It is for an officer in the Prussian army. The cypher does not match up with any of our research books on belt buckles. We have shared photos with other knowledgeable collectors and the consensus is that it is either a custom purchase example that could have been used while he was in the military or that it was used by an officer in a veteran’s group after he had retired from the army. It has a burnished gold finish. Both the buckle and keeper are present. It is very handsome and of the highest quality.
