This is the standard other ranks buckle for the kingdom of Saxony, one of the larger of the minor German states pre-1918, the two biggest being Prussia and Bavaria. It is an inexpensive item on account of some corrosion to the nickel face plate.

Just to let you know that the kukri arrived today safe and sound, many thanks for sending it so quickly. I'm more than pleased with this kukri, I'm so glad I spotted it on your website as I don't think I've ever seen another one like it for sale anywhere.
Once again many thanks and I hope to do business with you again in the future.

I received the silver Verdienstkreuz this morning. Your swiftness and dedication was very much appreciated and, though the envelope arrived with a Post Office sticker saying it had been found open or damaged, the cross was unharmed and looks beautiful. Thanks for your time.
