I don't think there have been any made since the Henry Wayne buckle. It's too bad, too.

Yup, that's pretty much it and not all to many of them got out there either due to the problems Henry ran into.

Re: functional 89 belt buckle


so what happened? I missed it, looks like there was a run in 08'?

was this hard to make? i figured if the begins/tdks could be made, why not the 89'er?

I don't know much about it, but I guess he just had some problems making them. I know at one point Ed had one in his possession that didn't lock properly (or was it that it didn't open properly? I can't remember.)

They were pretty complex. Made of metal and injection molded. He made a batch and was having problems with getting them painted. They were redone 2 or 3 times until the last company he dealt with made off with them all.

He did get a few of them out there that took the paint ok. Not sure but I think there are less than 10 of them in fans' hands.

Re: functional 89 belt buckle


yeah... i remember when i read the whole ordeal with the factory packing the buckles while the paint was still not fully dry and you were able to see the bubble wrap imprints on the surface of these buckles.

I would have totally gotten one like that and strip the paint myself to get it repainted in gold. He ran them in yellow paint.

Those were the closest 89 accurate buckles i saw online.

I hope to see a new batch soon. Unpainted. He did a wonderful job making them.

Dang, that's too bad. They looked sweet! Hopefully there will be another run by Henry. Yeah I also would have taken the buckle with the quality defects and redone the paint myself! If anyone plans on taking it on, please let me know.
