This vintage bank bag was made by Rifkin with their 1932 patent Arcolock. This is an early variant with a rare no-hole Talon zipper with D stops on the end. Earlier examples are made of canvas, while this one feels like a heavyweight nylon. Talon switched to a solid stop from the D-Stop in the 1950s, and Rifkin switched to a design with a windowed slot later on, so I would put the manufacture of this to the mid 1940s.

1930s Jeweled Studded western belt

http://www.ebay.com/itm/271900729809
This vintage belt was made c.1938 and was sold by Sears under the “Cowhand Special” model name. This type of jeweled, studded western belt was popular between about 1933 and 1941, with narrower styles and styles with overlaid contrast leather reviving it in the late 1940s-mid 1950s. This early variant was equally popular with cowboys as it was with the collegiate crowd, and you frequently see these worn in period photos with wide waistband collegiate slacks. This style of belt buckle was used on these belts from 1937-1939.

Belt Width: 1-3/4″
Smallest hole: 26″
Largest Hole: 33″
