Please could anyone help me with the year or years of manufacture of the belt buckle shown in the attachment. I have one and have been wearing it, love it! https://goo.gl/photos/ARG2mBjjXKmxHdE5A

Don't know but probably from the 70s with the compound on it.

I have one in the package unopened and its was made in Gainesville. They are popular and are pretty common to see. I'm guessing early 80s?  -

In the package! Thats awesome. I have seen them fetch a big price on **** out of package, I wonder what someone would be willing to pay to get an in the pkg specimen in their collection. So we are thinking 80's generally. Someone probably has this item in a catalog somewhere.

I always wonder that too. This stuff goes up and down in price on the big site so much. I seen these out of the package sell for 40-120. Guess it all depends on who's bidding. I got this one at Compton for 30 bucks a few years ago.
