A few months ago, I purchased the book, A Study of Navajo Concha Belts, by Donald Richards.
If you don’t own this book already, it is simply awesome and it inspired me to fill a void in my belt buckle collection. The void was a traditional center bar buckle commonly found on concho belts. A big thanks to my forum friend, @OrbitOrange, who found this buckle on a dealer’s website after my extensive search came up empty. If not for her alertness and thoughtfulness, I would have missed it. Thanks again, Double OO!!
Anyway, here’s the buckle followed by a group photo with my other buckles that I have posted before and some belt photos for size relevance. Feel free to post your belt buckles and concho belts. Would love to see them all in one thread!
