Up for sale is a vintage old pawn White Hogan handmade sterling silverbelt buckle by Native American silversmith, Ivan Kee!

Old Pawn Native American Jewelry refers to the pieces that were made, worn and treasured as not only adornment, protection of good health, but also as portable wealth. Not having ready access to banks, or cash money, this jewelry would often serve as the family "reserve" or "emergency" fund. In times of need, this silver and turquoise jewelry could be easily used as security with an authorized trader (pawned) for cash to meet the current crisis. Then, when the crops came in, or the sheep were shorn, the jewelry could be redeemed and take its place back in the family.

Unfortunately on occasions this jewelry would not be redeemed as planned. The lender would keep it for the agreed amount of time, and if the loan was not paid off by the agreed date, the Pawn Shop, or Trader would be authorized to sell the jewelry. Often, when the elders of the family die, their items are pawned and the money is divided among the family members.

The buckle measures 1-1/4" long, 2-1/8" wide, and weighs 27.8g.The buckle accommodates a 1" wide belt. The back of the belt buckle is stamped "Designed for 1968 C.C. Invitational", the White Hogan shop hallmark, Sterling, and the initials IK for Navajo silversmith Ivan Kee. It is in great condition. The line down the center of the back is not a crack or repair mark; this is a handmade piece, it is not perfect.

The buckle has been tested and examined for purity and is sterling silver. Furthermore, there are no marks or cosmetic damage because of this. The buckle pictured is the one you will receive.
