RAILROAD SAVINGS

Collector Series Brass Belt Buckles
Seven Buckles Total
.
Absolutely beautiful Railroad theme designed belt buckles! I believe these to be made of brass. All are in Super Excellent condition with most of them still in their original unopened cellophane packaging. I don't know just how many buckles the original collection contained but I have a total of 5 different designs and two duplicates. I have numbers 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 in the series (See Images Below For More Detail). I'm missing numbers 1 and 2. I also have one duplicate each of numbers 6 and 7 in the series. Each buckle states on back that this collection is "BY RAILROAD SAVINGS AND LOAN". Buckles measure approximately 3 5/8" wide by 2 3/4". The belt loop itself will accommodate belt widths up to 1 3/4" in width.
