SOUTHERN COMFORT Buckle
The myth: This buckle was sold for one dollar inside the Machinery Hall at the 1892 World’s Fair and was an advertisement for the Southern Comfort Whiskey Company. (The buckle has the likeness of an 1871 painting called “A Home On The Mississippi,” which was an image actually licensed by Currier and Ives to the makers of Southern Comfort and used on labels of their whiskey bottles.)
