GIFT QUALITY: What a terrific present for any railroad man - who may even remember riding in one of these ! He'll look really sharp at his train club meet or show! This belt buckle is solid brass molded in the form of a deeply three-dimensional railroad caboose. The caboose, complete with a cupola on top, is in red enamel. It is signed on the back by The Great American Buckle Co., Chicago with a fabulous American Eagle logo.
The buckle is further marked Serial Number J271 and Copyright 1979.
SIZE: The loop is made for a 1-1/2 inch belt. (It will accommodate a slightly larger or smaller belt.) This is very heavy: it weighs just under SIX ounces!
CONDITION is extremely nice with NO signs of wear! The belt loop is firmly attached, and the "pin" to push into the hole in a belt is solidly molded up from the back so it is nearly impossible to break off.
The detail in this piece is astounding, from the red boards (just alike a real caboose) to the "lenses" you can see in the tiny marker lamps. There is a brake wheel and even springs in the trucks. Amazing!
An extremely nice dark green velvet drawstring bag comes with it, and is a great place to store the buckle when not in use. The fabric and round tie are absolutely perfect.
