    Hello,

    this is a good example of the 50 mm prussian buckle introduced in 1847 and in use until 1895 when the new buckle in 45 mm was released

    This particular buckle is an early one, as the four solder points were used first then they were only three of them

    Of course, that type was in use during the franco prussian war of 1870

    Thanks a lot :-)
    I guess I did ok with this one then, and I think at a price of 35 euro it is pretty good too ;-)
