Arizona became a state on February 14, 1912, the last of the continguous 48 states to be admitted into the union.   At that time it was primarily rural with an economy based on cattle, cotton, citrus and copper. 

 

The design of this buckle depicts the cattle element of that economic base, with a cowboy rider and his herd of cattle.

 

Direct from the Archives of the Heritage Mint, Ltd. and available while supplies last.

Note:  Each buckle in an authentic Heritage Mint buckle, backstamped from the Heritage Mint, Ltd.

Heritage Mint, Ltd. Belt Buckles were produced in Solid Brass in the USA by American Craftsmen.  Each design featured deep sculptured relief and three-dimensional styling.  The master sculptures were created with the same artistic skill and meticulous detailing that goes into the making of coins designated for minting.  The hand cast original is duplicated in sub-maters used to form sand molds.  Molten brass, heated to 2000o F. in small crucibles, was poured into the sand molds.  Once cooled, each buckle was individually removed from the mold, smoothed and finished in 3 handwork steps, to impart the smooth, lustrous look that gives a living effect to the finished buckle.  A centuries old, time consuming process. But the only way to achieve the magnificent look, feel and quality that reflects the authenticity of the Heritage Mint, Ltd. Belt Buckles.
