    Default Silver Hessen Buckle? Info?

    Hey guys. I recently acquired this silver (Chrome?) Hessen buckle. It has a "stepped" side to it like the older 50mm buckles - but this one is a 45mm buckle. Just wondering if anyone has seen such a buckle and such a finish to it? Thoughts? Information? All is appreciated.
    Cheers!

    A couple pics showing it beside some 50mm. examples....and where it now sits with my other pre-18 and Weimar buckles.
    Cheers!

    Rob,

    Could this be for a 40mm belt? The Bavarian to the left of the Hessen seems to look smaller than the Prussian to it's right, suggesting 45 - 40 -50? I have the same buckle as yours, but mine's definitely 40mm.

    Best regards. Kurt

    My example is German silver (nickel silver, alpaca) and it has a duller tone compared with yours, which must be chromed, as you had guessed. I don't think mine would shine up like this.

    Not the best photos, but you can see what I mean about the finish. Also, the prongs and keeper bar are brass, which leads me to think that yours may have been plated.

    Hey! Thanks for those pics! Looks like a great buckle. I noticed that it does not have the stepped sides like my example - perhaps just another model. Looks good! Thanks for sharing the pics!
