Has anyone else ever come across one of these GUAM 1945 (or 1946) belt buckles? They appear to be made of brass and have different types of closures. The bottom piece appears to be made of aluminum and may not have ever been assembled into a finished piece. They seem to be theater made, but they pop up pretty frequently and I’ve never seen on from a named grouping or identified to a particular veteran.

I know of 4 designs.  I too would like to know more about these.  The 1945 Navy version is by far the most common.
