Measuring 2 3/8" by 1 3/8" and weighing a robust 1.8 T. oz., this belt buckle is marked with an eagle stamped with a number "3," locating it to Taxco, Mexico. Other marks include "925" for sterling, and a symbol with the maker's letters "M G" followed by either a "1" or an "I" set inside it.
The item itself looks to date mid 20th century. It is cubist or blocky in form, comprised of a series of assembled, solid, rectangular bars with plain, polished surfaces. It is slightly curved, to fit a waist.
It is in excellent condition, free of any damage, and with a fine finish. There are light surface scratches consistent with an item that has actually been used.
