    1928 Amsterdam Olympic Games Belt Buckle Presented to Tommy Lown. Tommy Lown was a Golden Gloves 147-pound national champion who captained the United States Olympic Boxing Team at the Amsterdam Olympic Games in 1928, where he fought as a welterweight.

    The artifact offered here was consigned to us as a buckle presented to Lown at the 1928 Amsterdam Olympic Games, but these relics were not imprinted with any athlete identifiers. We have not had the opportunity to remove it from the shadowbox and examine it and it is not accompanied by any provenance confirming that it was in fact presented to Lown. However, we have no doubt that this a vintage piece that was only given to athletes at the 1928 Games.

    The bronze colored buckle (1.5x1.75") displays red and blue enamel, the U.S. Olympic shield at the center, and the text "American Olympic Team, Amsterdam 1928." It is attached to a vintage brown leather strap (or belt) and beautifully presented in a shadowbox frame (23.25x14.25") with two photographs (each 6x4" visible) of Lown. The inscription plate incorrectly spells his last name as "Lawn."
