Hello,

My wife bought me the buckle on the right at the Cody show this past summer; I found the one on the left at an antique shop in Toronto.

Would you have any information on them, do you know if they were originally commissioned by Winchester ?

I assume both are original, from different batches.

Thank you.

 Do not have a whole lot of information.Have had two of these buckles.One I worn for years,  until the part where the buckle clip fits into the buckle  broke.The other I did not wear as much and still have it The two buckles I owned are like the one on the right.No Jim Watson or Canada Legendary Buckles in the middle of the rear of the buckle.

 

 Not sure when I bought them.Back in the 70’s I believe ,at a hunting goods store close to home.The owner of that store and the store itself are both gone now.So I cannot ask him any thing about where he got the buckles.

 Just to add.I believe the non Canada Legendary Buckles were authorized by Winchester Canada.The ones marked Canada Legendary Buckles, I do not know.Could be or could just be a copy of the earlier authorized buckle.

Thank you for the reply 28 gauge !!

I found a picture of the buckle on page 267 of “Winchester – An American Legend” by R.L. Wilson; but it doesn’t mean it was necessarily commissioned by Winchester.

28 Gauge. I have a few of those belt buckles as well. Also have a few of the Winchester Canada patches. I just picked the patches up a couple weeks ago. First time I’d seen them with Canada on them other than the small round ones that I have and see often at shows

 Seems to me I have a hat around here some where, with the round Winchester Canada patch on it.
