Authentic. Super Rare due to age and rare hallmark “828 s.”
This belt buckle was made circa 1910
Under the Danish Hallmarking Act of 1893, the content standard for all silver was set at 826 parts out of 1,000, which is slightly lower than the standard for sterling which is 925. The remainder is usually copper with very small amounts of iron, lead and traces of other metals. The Danish mark, 826S was used until about 1915 when silversmiths raised their silver content to 830 and eventually to 925. Georg Jensen did not switch to the sterling standard until 1927 although he occasionally made special orders in 925S for the American market much earlier
Somewhere during the transition period Jensen experimented with silver of purity 828 parts per thousand. This very rare belt buckle is an example of this experimental silver grade, evidenced by the ultra rare “828 s” mark.
