Marines were once again in China following WW2....from 1945 to 1949. China-USMC Souvenirs of various types were common. Here's a buckle from a Marine who was stationed in Peiping in 1946.

This is one of my favorites. A dress buckle encompassing an officer-size 1930-1937 collar type insignia. Unfortunately it came to me missing the locking side. Anybody have it in their 'junk' box?

Here's a neat piece of trench art I just got in. On a Naval trouser buckle, an EGA and a round that has been cut in half. One side has fallen off. These seem to be somewhat common, I saw three online last week. I don't think people are making them, but possibly they were made by a company to purchase, such as the asstrays from shell casings with the linked belt of rounds around them these days. Interesting none-the-less

I think it might be just a buckle - missing the metal parts which secured it to the belt and were possibly sewn to the belt. My 2-cents. Bob
