Hi Brian,

If there is a date on the coin it might assist with the age of the whole piece....but then again it may not. Is the coin Omani, and is it the only coin on the belt?

You do not give measurements, but to me this looks to be small? The style of the hilt top does look quite right to me. It does not look old and my guess would be late 20th century.

Nice piece but IMHO the decoration is mid to late 20th century, and typical of Yemeni work. Likely white metal rather than silver. The matchlock gun could be older. I would call the style Indo/Arab,...
