They've gone 'in and out' of use over the years. Currently they are used for NCO (E-4) and above. Yours looks earlier than that from what I can see.

After having a double bypass this past year, it's time to downsize and pass along much of my 'stuff'. I've had my fun, now it is someone elses turn.

This should give you a general idea as to the time frame: Measure the catch on the back of the plate. If it is about 3/4 of an inch from top to bottom (top being top of the plate direction, and bottom the bottom direction), it's probably pre-war or WWII era. If the catch is wider, about an 1 1/4 inches, most likely post WWII.

it predates 1956, notice the top anchor fluke. by the EGA style, I'm guessing pre-37

When did they start using the SNCO buckle? I found a photo in the LIFE Magazine archives showing one of the Marine Raider's senior NCO's in dress blues when he came back to the US near the end of WWII and he's wearing the plain buckle:
