Thank you.  Very interesting construction on this one and the loop on the one below it.

The 2nd buckle has the wrong color crown on it.

 

The crown should be neusilber color or "nickel silver" color to match the buckle box/frame.

 

Someone placed a wrong color Hessen crown on this buckle.  This is the 3rd or 4th time that I have seen this anomaly mistake, in viewing this buckle posted here.

 

The 115th Lieb Garde Infantry wore an all nickel silver buckle.

 

Yes, it is a private purchase style buckle, and unfortunately has the wrong color Hessen crown on it.

 

As a side note: on these neusilber buckles, I normally see the "U" shaped catch in a brass color. And the roller pin and the two claw pins would normally be seen in brass color also. I'll post a photo of a normal issue 1-piece Hessian buckle.

 

Best Wishes,

 

Alan

This is the way we normally see the Issued 1-piece buckle for the Hessen or Hessian 115th Lieb Garde Infantry Regiment.
