Seller: keen-fran (577) 100%, Location: Boston, Massachusetts, Ships to: US, Item: 264273892287 Vintage Sterling Silver Belt Buckle featuring alternating gold filled and copper stripes and in excellent condition. The buckle weighs 17.5 grams, is stamped 'sterling' and has a manufacturers mark of 'S & M (no jokes please.). It does have a tiny dent (upper left of first photo) and has been de-initialed: I've shown a close up of the center of the buckle for your inspection-my honest opinion is you'd have to be pretty darn close to notice. The buckle fits a belt 1 inch wide and is a compression type: The last photo shows the compression piece attached to the buckles loop. Move the loop in one direction to tighten the belt, the other to loosen. It's fast, easy to get used to and the hold is firm. The belt in the photo is for display purposes only, but I have belts-inquire if interested. I love this buckle and consider it a classic from the heyday of their popularity.
