Thanks John, I just found a similar version that is said to be 1876 Ottoman buckle, only difference is the one I found is plain round outside, this one has scrollwork, Officers?

So it is Turkish.
Maybe the scrollwork is for officers, or maybe it's a private purchase example.
It almost looks handmade.
Nice find. Very unusual.
