    Can anyone identify this belt buckle

    My brother just came across this belt and buckle today. I suspect it's Saudi, but I would like a confirmation, and maybe some background info about it. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance

    Thanks. That is interesting, It came with a Marine Corps shirt that a guy just dropped off at my shop. I wasn't there to get it, so I didn't get any of the details. the guy is a regular, so next time he comes in Ill ask him about it.

    Hi guys,

    To me this buckle was design to Royal Saudi Navy !
    Look at this page : https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Royal_Saudi_Navy

    The design is really close with some minor variation ! Try to find picts "in use" Wink

    awesome, thank you for the conformation. Would they have officially been in contact with the Marine Corps at any time? This came with a nice Marine Corps dress shirt. I can only guess that the marine traded it from a Saudi Sailor.

    A Marine obtaining this buckle is very very plausible. Nothing out of the ordinary in that regard.
