In 1974, Columbia River Capt. Ron Gray Sr., hand carved a brass tugboat and placed it on a hand crafted belt buckle. The belt buckle received so much interest he started a small-scale production that year of the same belt buckle as a hobby and were sold to co-workers and to others in the industry for many years until his retirement in 2004.
In 2010, Columbia River Capt. Ron Gray Jr, briefly took over his father's hobby for a short time and produced a limited supply of the same buckle his father made.
These 2010 produced new backstock belt buckles are 2" tall & 3"wide with brass tugboat centered on chrome buckle. Comes in gift box as shown.
A rare and sought after collectible that will be appreciated for years to come. Only 8 are available.
