Default Berlin police belt buckle

Hi guys, I'm looking for a picture of what a Berlin police officer used for a belt buckle in the 1910 - 1918 time period. I would like to purchase an original buckle and holster for my Berlin police marked Dreyse pistol and can't find any info on what was used. I found some info for the Weimer period police but not Imperial.
Thanks in advance.

They had nothing special and 100% no special buckle (I would have one, if any could be found on this planet )

Said this, Schutzmannschaft Berlin ordered a new pistol, 7,65 Browning system. Most likely for night shift in special areas. Problem is, that 99,999999999% of all period photos will show studio portraits or daylight pictures......

However I have only one (studio as well) of an officer (Berlin) with a handgun (here 08). His belt seems to be Dragoner/Cavallery, wartime picture. And one newspaper with related photo (Cavallery/Dragoner belt as well)

Here the Dienstvorschrift of Schutzmannschaft Aachen 1912.....sure the same as Berlin

Handguns were no personal equipment, officers only were armed on special occasionals.

Thank you Gerd. I really appreciate your information.
This gives me a direction to go in finding what I need.
Anyone have a correct belt or a small caliber holster for sale?
