From the Arroyo Grande Buckle Company comes this 1989 Apollo 13 Moon landing men’s belt buckle. This hard-to-find, beautifully detailed buckle commemorates the twentieth anniversary of NASA and the space industry. On the front of the buckle is an astronaut standing on the Moon, holding a flag of the United States, while the Apollo spaceship orbits above. On the bottom of the front side is a banner announcing the commemoration to NASA. The Moon, the Earth rising above it, and the American flag have multi-colored enamel.
The reverse side of the buckle holds the logo of Arroyo Grande, the limited edition number of 379 out of 5,000, a statement of dedication to space industry workers on a flag held by an astronaut (mimicking the front side of the belt buckle), and a “Made in USA” imprint on a map.
This belt buckle is in great vintage condition, showing minimal wear. The buckle will accommodate a belt no wider than 1.75 inches.
This rare commemorative belt buckle would make a great gift for the collector of men’s buckles or a wonderful addition to complete your own collection. Don’t let this one pass you by!
