j a, For the S&WCA meeting this year in Boise, Id., I took about 150 various S&W authorized and factory buckles and put the following prices on most of them - (For the more common buckles, all NIB) Buckle in orig. cardboard 2 pc. box, with papers $35, Same w/o papers, $30, In 2 pc cardboard & clear plastic lid, with papers $25, buckles w/o box or papers $15. For the uncommon buckles, add about 50%. I sold about 75% of them. Non-authorized buckles sold for $5 -$10, depending on quality. Special edition S&W buckles, like the Academy buckles and commorative or sterling silver/gold plated buckles are a niche situation and can bring several 100 dollars. This may give you some idea of what S&W collectors will pay for nice buckles. Ebay prices are all over the board, and occasionally bargains can be picked up, but the buckles there are mostly ripoffs from China, etc. Ed.
