Title Other ranks belt buckle
Nationality Turkish
Period c 1895-1914
Price £90.00

This is a German contract buckle made for the Turkish army from about 1895 onwards, when the German and Austrian arms contracts started replacing British and French ones. The Turkish army continued to wear these buckles into the 1960s.

The face plate is brass with a nickel centre soldered to it.

There is a small dent to the top left hand side and the usual assortment of small scratches and dings throughout, but generally speaking it is in good shape.

NB: This has a natural shine which isn't replicated in the photograph, which was taken to illustrate the condition of the metal.

Hanger arrived safe and sound 11.30ish today. Very pleased, it's as expected. Your excellent pics make all the difference in terms of confident buying over the net. As a matter of interest, the frog, which as you said is very a/f, is, as you thought, 'spot on'. On closer inspection it is a mk.1 Naval Frog, designated 'for cutlasses'. Date seems around 1860ish give or take.

By the way, I think your site is very user friendly. Seems to work much better than many and up to date, a rarity!!!
