Default Navy buckle id help please.

I apologize if this is the wrong place to post this but I didn't know where else to start. I found this buckle. I don't think it's German since it is marked "Paris" but who knows. Can anyone tell me what Navy, and what rank this would have been for? and what kind of sword would be hung from a hanger as long as this one? You would think one of the rings would have to be damn near to the drag!

The belt looks like the ribbon for the Bulgarian bravery medal.

Just a wild guess. But, it makes me think of South America. Perhaps, Argentina.

Or Chile. They like to use that Star symbol at the top of a motif like an anchor.

It is interesting, and probably important to note that there are very many similarities to the Kriegsmarine belt and buckle.
