Not highly polished brass
December 01, 2015
I ordered this sambrown brass buckle as I was getting promoted to Sgt., however, it was not a polished brass buckle. All of my other brass accessories were shinier than this buckle which did not sit well with me during my ceremonial promotion.
The brass buckle also had pits in it which was not a smooth metal.
I would not recommend this item if you are going to wear it for ceremonial / promotional reasons.
