    February 1965 Floyd Patterson Hickok Belt Buckle. The February 1, 1965 Madison Square Garden bout between Patterson and challenger George Chuvalo was considered by most fight experts as the best match of the year and Patterson's guttiest performance. Chuvalo was powerful and seemingly impervious to pain, but Patterson proved his own skill and toughness in weathering the storm and winning a unanimous decision. He was the easy choice when the people at Hickok Manufacturing Co. awarded this buckle for the top athlete of that month. The front of the buckle has a raised design with an athlete inside a laurel wreath and the engraved words, "S. Rae Hickok Award, Professional Athlete, F.P." Verso is engraved, "Hickok Champion, Febr. 1965, Floyd Patterson, Boxing." Wonderful condition. A fine piece relating directly to this Champion fighter's finest hour.
