Obtained directly from the family of Pfefer associate and wrestling promoter Tony Santos.
This is the belt worn & used by Buddy Rogers back in the late 1940’s and early 1950’s when he worked with promoter Jack Pfefer.
I believe, it was initially worn by Dave Levin (The Jamaica Butcher Boy) as evidenced by the center plate. The side plates indicate Buddy Rogers was awarded the belt on July 21, 1947 in Tulsa Oklahoma (and several times later!) and Billy Darnell was awarded the belt on October 26, 1948 in San Diego California. It remained in the Pfefer stable and was later worn by: George Bollas, The Demon, Bozo Brown, Tom Marshall, The Indian Nature Boy, Hoppalong Rokko, The Jungle Boy (with Moolah) and finally (?) The Amazing Zuma.
