This buckle is theater made but not Philippines obviously. I picked it up last year on Ebay. I'm guessing its late 40's / Occupied Japan era but thought the engraving was super well done. The seller said it was sterling but my guess it it was just silver dipped over brass. The back is kind of odd as it appears to be made to slid over an existing belt buckle. Either that or its missing the internals.
