is a vintage Hugh De Payens No 30 commandery sword belt & buckle. I am not sure if this is for a masonic or knights templar lodge. I did some research and from what I found Hugh De Payens was the founder of the Templars in Jerusalem. Has a nice red maltese cross (appears to be enameled) in a shield on the center of the buckle. T are also two smaller red crosses on the rim of the buckle above the No 30. Buckle measures about 2 3/4 by 2 1/8 inches - oval shaped. Belt measures 40 inches not including the buckle. The longes chain measures about 22 inches and the shorter ones measure about 7 inches. Belt is a redish leather that needs a good cleaning. The leather belt is stamped with a makers mark from a Philadelphia company but I can not make out the name. T is some white paint just on the tip at the opposite end from the buckle. The belt has three chains of varying length that are attached to it with a holder for one additional chain. Nice vintage masonic or commandery item - do not see these belts very often.
