This is the belt my Mom received as a teenager in the late 1930s when her brother sent her a buckle from Albuquerque for Christmas and her stepfather had a harness maker create a belt to go with it. It has been sitting in a drawer at my house for decades because that has been how long it didn't fit me.
I asked my cousin to design and make a new belt using the old buckle and I'm delighted with the result. I've been wearing it all day. What fun to have a double heirloom that is wearable.
