    Description
    This belt buckle is a piece of memorabilia related to the United States Navy bearing the initials USN and an anchor. The item, collected by Vanessa (Zena) Roberson is significant in the context of her collection of naval souvenirs during the period between 1950 and 1980. It is possibly related to the visit of USS BREMERTON I (CA-130), a Baltimore-class heavy cruiser to Sydney in 1959 or more likely the USS BENNINGTON (CV-20), an Essex-class aircraft carrier, which visited in 1957 or 1967. The inscription affixed to the object reads “1958 Belt Buckle Chief from the USS Bremington [sic.] Carrier.”
