This Leo Poblano Inlaid Rangers Belt Buckle is highly attributable. Why?
A-The inlay work is perfection, only a few master stone cutters could achieve this level of stone to stone inlay!
B- the dots and circular cuts lead us to think this was indeed crafted by Poblano as this was his signature work during this era. The work is unsigned as was common at this time.
C-The stamp work on the silver is also another point of attribution as we have seen this exact stamp and layout used on some of his pins. Safe to say this is indeed a LEO POBLANO ranger set!
