Original solid brass, early-war French infantryman's waistbelt buckle, in excellent condition. In the hardware trade this piece would be termed a double-tongued brass wire buckle, 2 in. (5.4 cm.) with roller, and I guess that about says it. Condition is excellent, with the brass very slightly patinated, but exhibiting what may be original finish. Wartime manufactures were identical, but of iron, so despite the fact the French undoubtedly made millions of them, this is a scarce buckle nowadays.
