That's a great looking buckle with an EGA that could date it any time between 1920's-1940's. It is roughly the style of an NCO buckle, but I would suggest it was not worn with any uniform. Consider:...

I stand corrected on the wool, in that case. I have a near unissued M40 that's Czech-made and this is not a match. Thanks for pointing this feature out.

Mike, I can see eagles being added by...

The wool looks odd from these limited photos. The breast is a definite replacement IMO, and reverse photos of the collar would help on the tab evaluation.

To be fair, you asked for opinions and got them. Many collectors are reluctant to share details that reveal to fakers how to improve, but this is very basic.

Very interesting clip. Interesting use of allied helmet nets, as well as a piece of U.S. parachute repurposed as a helmet cover.

Thank you for posting it.

It was not an authorized tie for wear with any Marine Corps uniform. It likely was allowed to be worn with civilian attire, as stated, but you could say the same about any clothing accessory.

Smart to post it though, I've found some nice original pieces over the years attached to very poor fake tunics.

Always safe to ask if you are not sure.
