Question: Belt Buckles

If a person came across a belt buckle that says on the front:
American Express Co.
Wells, Butterfield & Co.

And on the back says:
rare stones, Tiffany, Broadway, New York
reward if returned by hand to 10 Wall Street, New York or 48 South 3rd Street Philadelphia.

My question is can you tell me something about this item? It's worth?

Thanks for your information.

I have the same buckle as this except mine is Sterling Silver and It says "Richardson Sterling" on the belt bar on the back. I have never seen another one in Sterling. I have seen several brass ones. But never sterling. Does anybody else have this one in Sterling? Please reply. The connect website only mentions Brass. I believe mine is original and older than 1950, since my grandfather is the one that found it in the 1940's in a public landfill.

stop telling people to go that website! it has no info, garbage. Nothing at all about the WF717 SYNEK NYC belt. All I want to know is, how old the buckle may be, if its legit vintage, and a possible price for it. and nothing online provides this info. Somebody out the there has to have some answers,..or i suppose I'll just go to antiques road show next time they roll through town.
