Simply hard to find 1945-46 School Year University of Florida belt buckle. I can't tell you what it commemorates as I can't find any history on the piece, the end of a athletic year, club year, graduation year, I simply cannot say.
The piece is unmarked on the back (the silver part) beyond etched into the metal C. F. L.; Florida orange enamel, the "black" portion of the enameling under magnification at the chipped areas is actually a darker blue, but visually is black. Chipping to the enamel. Lots and lots of scratches to the buckle front and back. This item was worn a lot. Someone was very proud of this piece and the wear shows it.
The grip on this is brass and at one point it was silver plate. The details on the brass so Pat. Pend. Giant Grip?, Invisible, Made in USA. I do not know how this buckle configuration works.
Measures 2 1/8" across and about 1 9/16" high. Weighs as pictured 47.6 grams.
As a huge Florida Gators fan and Florida boy, I actually hate selling it...alas, I don't keep anything I purchase; it's all for sale. The UF letter F is simply unmistakable, but I suppose it could be another university :)
This was tested with a Niton XL2 and my gold & silver buyer was very confident in the result on it.
