From the estate of a former Consolidated Freightways, CF trucking company executive comes this 30 service award belt buckle, circa late 1970s. Stamped with makers' mark: BALFOUR and '12K-G.F.'

CF was based in Akron, Ohio and is no longer in business.

approx. 1.75" x 1.25", excl. belt loop; loop holds up to 1" belt

Matte, brushed deep gold with semi tractor trailer truck logo that incorporates the CF in rig cab and four tiny 'emeralds' for wheels. A bit darker/less shiny than photos suggest. Have not tested/determined if gemstones are real emerals, synthetic stones or glass/rhinestone. Each is facted, not a chip. However, a history of the Balfour jewelry company suggests that they did use genuine precious gems in the production of their service award items:

The L.G. Balfour Company of Attleboro, MA has been making quality jewelry since 1913. Lloyd Garfield Balfour originally started the company to make items for fraternities and sororities on college campuses. During WWI the US Government hired them to make military insignia for the Armed Forces. When the war was over, Balfour created new product lines including a wide array of company service awards, many that were gold filled or 10K gold and included enamel and/or genuine precious stones in the logo designs.

Very good-excellent used condition with moderate signs of wear on back & hardware. No stone loss, obvious/deep scratches or plating loss observed. Belt loop firmly attached and rotates well.

Swanky belt accessory for guys or gals. You'll look long to find another.
