For those that don't know, a company called Crumrine Jewelers out of Reno, NV made the original Big Gold for Jim Crockett Promotions, with Ric Flair being the first holder. When Dusty Rhodes defeated him for the title a nameplate was ordered for him but was never actually put on the belt.
Cody Rhodes tweeted that he found it in a cigar box and contacted the owner of the original Big Gold and had it put on for photographs. The nameplate is back in Cody's possession now and word is he has no intention of selling it. Pretty freaking cool find, and some great pics. I always thought Scott Steiner stole the original Big Gold, guess I was wrong. Read more here.
