I see this buckle post for sale, and want to get some opinions. I'm a fan of the Philippine carved buckles, but this one isn't done in the same format. More square than rectangle. Is it a "war" piece, made chinese made? or post war.  OR ... is it even a buckle?  What cha think?

Wouldn't the owner's name be done in Japanese script?


The Japnese will use "romanji" or Roman / English lettering for decorative purposes, or if they working around Westerners.

“But I don’t want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
"Oh, you can’t help that," said the Cat: "we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad."
"How do you know I’m mad?" said Alice.
"You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn’t have come here.”
