This belt buckle was found at the Salvos about fifteen years ago and gives a little away about my past. I used to wear it out in the evenings when I was still hitting the bars up the road. These days it’s slightly tarnished. Life mellows one out. Not that it is overly fancy for a belt buckle but it shined up well.
I’m sure it’s solid silver but it’s not marked. In Australia everything has silver marks except colonial silver; so I’d always supposed it was ‘foreign’.
I need some help with this one. Perhaps it’s Mexican? Perhaps someone on Collector’s Weekly can help me here?
It’s 7.5 cm or 3” across.
The decoration is hand chased across the face of the six-pointed star.
