The reverse shows a maker’s mark that reads: “FRONTIER BUCKLES, STERLING, HAND ENGRAVED”
Approximately 3-7/8” x 2-3/4”
Brass, sterling, hand engraved
Hook and loop/lug
“FRONTIER BUCKLES”, “STERLING”, “HAND ENGRAVED”
This is from a Western collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. MHFV16 LCDEX11/16
