That's my dad on the swing!

I have a handful of these awesome 1970's metal belt buckles, they're new old stock with a western themed design. There's a neato empty metal "frame" on the front, originally designed to hold polished rock and gemstone pieces.

Here's how the custom aspect works:
You email me the photo of your choice, I size it, print it (on heavyweight matte photo paper, from my nice epson pro-sumer photo printer) and then I mount the picture in the mini photo frame I've created. The front of the photo is protected with clear plastic.

Ta-da!! A killer custom gift!

Picture possibilities are of course limitless- cars, pets and hobbies offer good inspiration for father's day themes.

Please note, these are hard to find vintage buckles and this is not a commercial kit thing, it's just me and my exacto blade. I have only one bag of these buckles, so supply and selection is limited.
This particular listing is for the blue and silver buckle design shown above. Check the 5th picture to see other designs currently available, and then check the shop for the individual design under the BUCKLES section.

More nuts and bolts:
The frame portion is screwed on from the rear, it can easliy be removed later if you wish to change the picture.

Buckles measure approx 3.5" wide by 2.75" tall.

The buckle shown in the photo is not the exact one you'll receive, you'll get one in similar condition. These came out of individually sealed plastic bags, they have never been used but occasional jostling over the years may have left scratches to the metal.

Please take into account the vertical format of the buckle frame when you select your photo.

Buckles ship via First Class Mail with delivery confirmation. Priority Mail service can be arranged for an addtional 2.00.

I'm happy to answer questions!
♥ Please enjoy a journey through my vintage treasures. ♥

P.S.
A copy of the buckle with my husband in his West Virginina years (gold tooth, bear claw necklace) is available for purchase, we could probably commercially produce those for novelty stores huh...

Hell, you can also buy a copy of my dad (the kid in B&W), although I can't imagine anyone but my siblings wanting one, and I got dibs on this gift!
