Brass belt buckle
« on: July 24, 2013, 01:02:33 PM »
I can't seem to find any information about the two piece belt buckle that I have. It has Royal M Mfg Co and x7641 stamped on the back. The only thing I've found about the company is that they were in operation in NY from 1890-1915. Its in good condition a few scratches and its a little bent in the back where the belt goes through but other than that its a nice piece. Any info on what it might be worth would be great. Thanks

Since its an early style it might sell for $20. !!  I saw that many of their frames had decent prices but nothing was selling !! There were three Royal Mfg Co. !!  Other two made silver items mostly !!

Thanks for looking and commenting. My grandmother is cleaning out her house of over 50 yrs and she is one who never throws out or gets rid of anything so there will be more to come. Thanks again
