"Yes, Montana Silversmith belt buckles are actually made in Montana," I said.
It was a fair question. In this day of automated this, and outsourced that, it's almost shocking to find a fine, high-quality American product (like Montana Silversmith belt buckles) that has not lost its innocence, been bastardized, or been conglomerated by some multi-national thingamajiggy.

(GoldMountainTrading.com ships more Montana Silversmith belt buckles than any other Montana Silversmiths dealer. Not bad for a mom and pop operation!) I was tellin' them young'ns about how the process of making Montana Silversmith belt buckles starts with one person an artist. I showed 'em the End Of The Trail Belt Buckle #3 and all the details and craftsmanship. And the Buffalo Buckle, with its fine silver filigree engraving. I was trying to show them the incredible variety of Montana Silversmith belt buckles, like the Texas Belt Buckle and Southwestern Buckle. (All these, and hundreds more, are displayed at GoldMountainTrading.com.)
