Assuming that I am able to remove the patina with vinegar/salt, does this appear to be the correct buckle for the belt? I would hate to order the wrong thing... thanks!

We did the silver with Drano Powercleaner, which is for cleaning drainpipes. i think it was 6-10 hours in pure Drano. After that, we put a little liquid Carpolishwax on it, cause without it, the bucket startet to rust.

all it takes is a salt/vinegar soak for about a 1-2 hours, patina comes right off and shiny silver remains. I have not added any overcoat and in years there has been no rust, wouldn't expect any.
