Default Hickok Buckle

Hello All,

I took the kiddos out for a short hunt on Sunday and came across a couple of interesting items, including a 1944 Merc, a 1964-D Washington, a dog tag (kind of a fun trinket), a pair of religious medals and a cool belt buckle.



I've never came across anything made by the Hickok Jewelry Company of Rochester NY, but apparently they made very ornate and interesting items in the 30's and 40's. This particular belt buckle (intact) has a "B" on the face, and has "Hickok" and "Hickok Plate" stamped on the back. There's also the work "Bronze" stamped on the D-Ring portion.





Here's a short vid of digging the Merc.



Thanks for looking, and HH!

Tony

The King remembers Hickock belts and buckles from the 1970's that were sold at Phiffer Blass in downtown Hot Springs AR where He grew up!
