Default Imperial "hessen" steel e.m. Buckle from antique shop...

Hello folks. This surfaced at an antique shop amongst some other WWI "souvenir" items (including a couple of EK's, .800 Silver patriotic German pin, and a very nice US Ambulance Corps dog tag). I wasn't even sure what German state it represented until after the fact. Apparently, the original leather belt was with it originally, but became so deteriorated that the seller threw it away, however at least had the foresight to hang onto the keeper. It's unmarked as far as I can tell, and with the exception of some light rust patina, remains in nice shape. A few pix below. It's the first Hessian buckle I believe I've ever come across....
