Nevadans buckle up for sesquicentennial

Limited-edition belt buckles are on sale to mark Nevada’s 150th birthday.

RENO, Nev. (AP) — Nevada residents can now wear their state pride on their belts.

The state’s sesquicentennial committee has unveiled limited-edition belt buckles marking Nevada’s 150th birthday. They made their debut this week at the Reno Rodeo, which runs through June 28.

The buckles are made of bronze and feature the state slogans “Battle Born” and “All For Our Country.” They were co-created by State Sen. James Settlemeyer and Crumrine Gold and Silversmiths.

Proceeds from the buckles, which sell for $100 each, benefit the Nevada 150 Foundation. They’re available for purchase at the rodeo, at the legislative gift shop in Carson City and at sesquicentennial events around the state.
