I found this in some magazines that were getting thrown out. I opened one up and it fell on this 1957 Chevy ad that I’d not seen before so I cut it out. Unfortunately I didn’t have time to get more. I’d sell this for $5. This magazine was called Holiday.
Steak and Ale Restaurants belt buckle, looks like pewter or pot metal.
One of my favorite card games. Uno belt buckle probably from 1980. “Uno – Let’s Play Games” is the slogan. Unfortunately I just had all my belt buckles in a box and so several have scuffs and scratches now. You can see two pretty visible ones on this buckle. I’m pretty sure there’s a way to cover that, but I haven’t messed with metal in a long time.
Olympia Beer and Busch Beer belt buckles. Here’s a throwback. Remember when everyone wore belts that could change the buckle? I have about 100 belt buckles. Ridiculous, I know. I don’t have any belts this thick anymore. I had forgotten that I had so many till I was getting out all my pop bottles and found them under some bottles. One of my kids laid them all out and I was surprised at how many there were. I’ll be posting some of the interesting ones here.
Pall Mall Cigarettes/Rand McNally road atlas for the United States and southern Canada. This is some kind of advertising for gas stations I guess suggesting that they use outdoor cigarette machines. Outdoor machines are not used now because kids can buy from them with no ID check, but they used to be everywhere. No date on the atlas, but the info on the “new” interstate system is interesting. The system was proposed in 1956, but not much was built for several years after.
