Going, Going and will be Gone. Over 3500 buckles and over 45 years of collecting are up for grabs. After having a heart attack and a 4 way by-pass its time to downsize and call it quits on a collection of buckles that I have cherished for many years. There are well over 3500 buckles in my collection and I will be listing them as my health permits me to do so. My enjoyment can now be yours.
Thank you and God Bless. The bitterness of poor quality lingers long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!!! THE NATIONAL BIT, SPUR & SADDLE COLLECTORS ASSOCIATION.
These vintage buckles have never been worn. Vintage collectables are increasing in value by leaps and bounds. VINTAGE NEVER WORN ONE OF A KIND ORIGINALS. ALL HAND MADE AND NOT MASS PRODUCED FOR THAT EXTRA EXCEPTIONAL QUALITY THAT YOU WILL NOT FIND JUST ANYWHERE.
Don't be fooled into purchasing a cheap knockoff made in Mexico or China! Don't be lied to by the scammers currently offering buckles copied from my original designs or claiming to be champion buckles.
Blow up the pictures and see for yourself. Google me I have a website with over 3000 buckles of the past shown on it. They are not for sale.
If quality is what you are looking for, look at my feedback. If a cheap buckle that will break or lose all its finish in a short time, or a mass-produced copy is what you want, then don't look here.
And when you own one of my buckles you not only own the best experience from a master silversmith in the industry, but the best quality and authenticity available. Approximately 3.5 X 4.5 Inches Look at the photos and you will see the exact size.Please visit my store and view other rodeo buckles for sale. I WILL BE LISTING OVER 3500 MORE BUCKLES FROM MY PRIVATE COLLECTION. PLEASE FOLLOW MY SHOP AND CHECK BACK OFTEN. OVER 650 VINTAGE RODEO TROPHY BUCKLES IN MY STORE FOR SALE.
I WILL NEVER USE CHEAP BLACK PAINT TO MASK FLAWS IN MY MERCHANDISE! MANY COMPANIES PAINT THE BACKGROUND BLACK BECAUSE THE BUCKLE IS CAST AND NOT HAND ENGRAVED. THIS PAINT COVERS THE FLAWS AND DETAIL OF THE BUCKLES.ENLARGE THE PHOTOS AND JUDGE FOR YOURSELF! THESE ARE OLD SCHOOL BUCKLES, HAND MADE ONE AT A TIME AND NOT THE MODERN-DAY FLASH AND TRASH GAUDY BUCKLES BEING MASS PRODUCED TODAY.
I ALSO HAVE A LISTING FOR CUSTOM BUCKLES FOR THE INDIVIDUAL WHO WANTS TO REPLACE A LOST BUCKLE OR HAVE SOMETHING SPECIAL MADE SUCH AS A BRAND, RANCH BUCKLE, OR COMMEMORATIVE BUCKLE. YOU WILL NEVER SEE ANYTHING BUT SUPERIOR QUALITY IN THE MAJOR RODEO EVENTS LIKE THESE WERE MADE FOR.
BLOW UP MY PHOTOS AND COMPARE TO OTHERS LISTED. YOU TRULY ARE GETTING WHAT YOU PAY FOR. This is an actual picture of the item that is for sale.FROM MY VAST PRIVATE COLLECTION OF SIGNED ONE-OF-A-KIND ORIGINALS. EVERY CHAMPION TROPHY BUCKLE IS PERSONALLY SIGNED ON THE BACK BY MYSELF JUDGE LEO SMITH. This is the real deal. Don't get called out in public and embarrassed by a RODEO COWBOY who can spot an imitation buckle. These are real and were made for real COWBOYS. These are some of, if not the best custom RODEO TROPHY BUCKLES available. If you do not love it, I will take it back. I CAN ALSO MAKE YOU A SPECIAL BUCKLE WITH A BRAND, COMPANY LOGO OR RECREATE A BUCKLE THAT YOU LOST OVER THE YEARS. At the time of this listing there were over 650 different VINTAGE trophy buckles listed. EVERY PART IS HAND MADE BY A MASTER CRAFTSMAN. THESE ARE NOT PLATED machine made, or painted with cheap black paint that others are advertising for sale. These are made with pure Jeweler's Bronze and Rodeo Nickel Silver. Brass will turn green in time and Cheap silver plating will chip off the cast buckles. BLOW UP THE PICTURES OF SOME OF THE OTHER BUCKLES FOR SALE. IF IT IS PAINTED BLACK AND HAS A SMOOTH OR PEBBLED BACKGROUND IT IS MOST LIKELY A CAST BUCKLE WITH PLATED LETTERING AND NOT HAND ENGRAVED. IN TIME THE BLACK PAINT AND SILVER DIP WILL COME OFF AND MAKE A VERY UNATTRACTIVE BUCKLE. THAT IS WHY ALL OF MY RODEO TROPHY BUCKLES ARE HAND ENGRAVED AND MADE ONE BUCKLE AT A TIME. THESE ARE NOT MASS PRODUCED.
WE DO CUSTOM BUCKLES, FROM BRANDS TO COMPANY LOGOS. ANYTHING YOU CAN DREAM UP.
