    I believe that is a grenadier's buckle, but the construction makes me think it may be more recent production.

    Thank you for answering Gus. I guess what you are saying is that it might be a fake? Personally i think it looks crudely made. Corners just been cut off ect. I am not skilled in Rus Empire buckles at all.

    The lack of patina on the brass, the mint condition of the buckle, the copper wire and tongue and the hand cut hook all look irregular for an Imperial produced buckle, to me.
