Found two of these awesome 75th anniversary buckles while picking yesterday. Owners father worked for simplicity. Still in their original boxes...Pretty neat.

Wow

12 is low. I have 859 and 860 out of ??? How many were made?

I had heard 1000...then I heard 1500, and actually had buckle 1499 before my current one.  So, I would say 1500 or more.  #1091 is on ebay now.

I am doing a little downsizing of some of my allis/Simplicity items and am going to bring some items to sell at the show. I am not going to try to make a bunch of money....just want to get some of my cool memorable items and a few spare parts into the hands of my fellow enthusiast / club members.
