Made in USA of American pewter (no lead) by the former Buckles of America foundry as part of the Masterpiece Collection. Solid, heavy duty construction and beautiful details. I have had these stowed away for over a decade. Fits standard belt up to 3".
Measuring approx. 3-1/4" across and 2-1/4" tall. Front shows Santa with message "Merry Christmas" below. Framed in holly border. Back has company name and logo with Made in USA shield. The inscription reads, "FIRST EDITION OF A SERIES, THIS BUCKLE IS DEDICATED TO ALL WHO LOVE CHRISTMAS AND THE GENEROUS SPIRIT OF THE SEASON REPRESENTED BY SANTA CLAUS." Each buckle has a serial number and production was limited to 2,000. Note the double eagles holding the belt bar, a standard for Buckles of America.
Unfortunately, no additional designs where issued for this series as the foundry was sold to Concord Industries and used for other purposes.
These are rarely offered for sale. I have only a couple left and then they are gone forever. Serial number will differ from photo.
