From what I have heard, there were only 100 of these limited addition belt buckles made in 1983. My dad bought a bunch right on the spot. He has #3 and I inherited #7 when my mom passed away. He shared the love with some close friends with the rest of them. If I recall correctly, he paid $100 each in 1983. They are beautiful pieces of art....I will treasure it always. Matthew J. Pieper

Heres mine...Ive had it forever and Never leave home without it... Large patina Moon of which most of the patina has worn off.... A guy once told me it was corroded and i needed to have it polished.

Thanks Bear! :D

notice the resemblance of the moon buckle and the moon in the upper corner of the art print in the pic below... wonder if the art was inspired by the gift of the buckle ?
