    Re-post it .. It's always nice to see visuals just for comparison purposes.

    Again... IMO... open opposed face (3 openings) match box holder someone sawed... NOTE saw marks.

    But really... ?

    Not a buckle IMO for there is no reminisce of a hook / pin that would have held belt in position ... and the edges appear too sharp for a buckle.

    I'm not seeing any saw marks myself, and it would seem odd for them to put the stampings on the underside of the top of a match box holder where nobody would see them.

    But it only measures 1 1/8 inches (OD) which looks like only an inch ID wide, by 1 5/8 long. Never seen a match box or matches that small.

    As I mentioned, it looks like it had sides that have been broken off, not sawed. The ends look smooth and undamaged. They may have just been flat sides that held a belt pin or they could have wrapped around slightly to hold a drawer. Since they're missing, there's really no way to tell. The measurement inside the back side between the broken off area is 1", which would be perfect for a 1" wide belt strap or drawer. I'm more inclined to think belt buckle, but, if the actual patent photo could be found, that would decide it for sure.

    I did... AFTER posting... sorta think the same thing about size being too small for my opinion.

    Also...

    I assumed Benz went through the patent gamut... with no result to solve ?
