1940s studded, jeweled western belt

http://www.ebay.com/itm/271467982492
This vintage leather western belt was made in the 1940s. It is made of brown leather with a floral tooled pattern. It has a double prong garrison style buckle. As was popular with western belts of the period, it is embellished with jewels and studs. It is marked “Yellowstone Park” on the back. Was it sold there as a souvenir of the west, or was that a brand name? Whatever the case, it didn’t go far, spending the rest of its life up to this point in Montana.

Sizing (remember to take measurement over pants)
Length to first set of holes: 32″
Length to last set of holes: 34-1/2″
Belt Width: 1-3/8″
