This is a 3 piece solid sterling with what appears to be pink gold & yellow gold on the flower & leaf / feather design. It has western engraving: a rope edge with a zig-zag background. It looks like a flower with flowing leaf / feathers is applied on top in silver then the flowers on the tip and keeper were covered with pink gold and the leaf / feathers were covered with yellow gold. On the buckle the flowers and leaf / feathers are covered in yellow gold and the banner spot is covered in pink gold The buckle is very heavy as it's solid not hollow construction. The buckle is stamped on the back "STERLING MEXICO 18K". The tip has a large "V" and below that is stamped "STERLING MEXICO 18K".
The measurements are approx, taken at widest and longest spots and are as follows:
Buckle: 1 7/16" wide x 1 8/16" long. It should take a 5/8" or slightly less width belt.
Keeper: ¾" wide x 7/16" long
Tip: 5/8" wide x 15/16" long.
The buckle set has considerable old age and use related wear, nicks, scratches etc but is still very usable and good looking, I think. The keeper is bent sideways a little but I don't think it'll affect usability and you should be able to bend it back fairly easily. The tip has a hole w the nail holding it to the belt was. See pics.
This neat old ranger buckle set would make a great gift addition to anyone's western memorabilia collection. Don't miss out on this great, vintage western buckle set!
