Vintage belt buckle from Crumrine Jeweler’s in Reno Nevada. Highlighted is an American Eagle in flight. The front has great detail and is highly etched. The buckle is oval in shape and measures just over 4 inches side to side by 3 inches top to bottom. The bale opening measures 1 and 5/8ths inches, so leave a little room for the belt to move.
I’m guessing the belt to be from the 1980s. Researching the company I find they started out in Santa Ana California but moved to Reno Nevada in 1979. The tag on the back of this buckle states “Reno NV”. The buckle does have an older look to it, and it also looks like it was never used. It is in beyond excellent condition.
From the Crumrine website:
Each buckle still receives the same hand craftsmanship, hand finishing, and hand inspection that went into the company’s earliest products. By using the latest tooling and manufacturing techniques, Crumrine maintains its long standing edge in the categories of engraving depth, detail, luster of finish and overall merchandise selection. More than ever, Crumrine products are synonymous with the word “keepsake”.
As you can see in my photos (especially the back side photo), I have not polished the buckle. The amount of patina verifies that the buckle hasn’t been used in many years and as I stated, I see no evidence that it has ever been used.
Delivery will be via USPS First Class Mail Parcel from Arizona. Buyer to pay delivery charges of $9.95. The package will be insured and will require a signature at the time of delivery.
SPECIAL NOTE about SHIPPING CHARGES: Twice yearly and again in November for the holiday season (so 3 times each year) the postal service increases shipping charges. This is what they call their “Delivering for America” plan in which they hope to become profitable. It’s a 10 year plan that started in 2021, so we’ve got years to go with multiple price increases each year. I try to absorb some of the new charges and haven't increased my shipping charges in three years. This year, unfortunately, I have to increase the shipping. I'll try to keep it reasonable and even absorb some of the changes when possible.
I do combine shipping on multiple items purchased as long as all items can fit safely into a single box or envelope. However, my web host is not set up to calculate multiple item shipping costs. At checkout, you will be charged full shipping price on each item purchased and I will refund the appropriate amount of overpayment. If you are uncomfortable with that, you can send me an email with your zip code and stating which items you'll be purchasing and I'll calculate the correct combined shipping charges and send you a custom invoice.
INTERNATIONAL PURCHASES: Sorry, I do not ship to locations outside of the United States.
All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
