Frank's fantastic find!

My neighbor, Frank, is a carpenter. Sometimes he trades work for items of equal value. He occasionally brings me beautiful pieces of mid-century modern furniture, paintings, and various collectibles when he can't identify them. I research them for him and he mows my lawn for whatever information I mine.

Today he brought me a belt buckle he pulled out of storage. He received it in exchange for work 15 years ago from a a lady he re-finished a chair for.

As soon as I saw it I knew what it was! I could hardly contain my excitement. Here are the pictures.

A Christopher Ross Horse Belt Buckle!

I've already lined a buyer up for him, but if she passes it up I'm going to somehow find the cash and add it to my jewelry collection.
