Clinton and Elk City are in Oklahoma and the white leather buckle is for Production Credit Association whatever that is. Wikipedia:

Production Credit Association

A Production Credit Association (PCA) delivered short- and intermediate-term loans to farmers and ranchers, and to rural residents for housing. A PCA also made loans to these borrowers for basic processing and marketing activities, and to farm-related businesses. A PCA obtained funds from an FCS bank to lend to its members. PCAs own their loan assets.

They were created under the Farm Credit Act of 1933. All present-day PCAs are now subsidiaries of ACAs.

They also spent government funds on advertising belt buckles!

The brown leather buckle is for the Wichita Livestock Market which is of course in the great state of Kansas. And I know what a livestock market is.
