    The belt has an inscription of some sort. Each buckle has a different inscription. Any information about this belt would be appreciated?

    Oh, that's fab! Hard to read. Something about a boat. Let's see if I can make out more.

    And, sorry, but it's concha belt, concha meaning shell. Referring to the scalloped edges.

    "History of the Princess Ana Alejandra" something something "Ana Alejandra" something "on the high sea from" somewhere (Colombia, I think) "in a ship" something "day 10 of April" some year.

    If someone can manipulate it a bit for me, sure rest can be deciphered.

    No, unfortunately. They need greater contrast to be truly legible. This one starts with "The big" or "The great" but can't read the rest.

    Sorry. Can't make further headway with No. 1. No. 3 is about Sultan Murad Abel but can't fully read it.

    Do have to say funny stuff to find on the back of a concha belt.
