    They did this buckle as a gold KM buckle, is there any gold on the obverse of the buckle under the green paint? Its an original buckle just need to sort the paint out when it was done

    Thank you Ben. I can't see any paint other than the green on the obverse. The parts that have the green paint chipped off just expose the steel. So do you think this actually is a KM buckle?

    Thanks Ben, either way I enjoy the item. I purchased it to go with a heer tropical feld bluse but it will have to do!

    A very interesting buckle. It does look like it started off as a gold painted KM and who knows when the front was painted.

    Yes Kirby it is an interesting buckle. I am not an expert on buckles but I can't see any other reason why it would be gold. The buckle was purchased with a tropical belt which I also posted some time ago, so it is definitely a mystery!
