I have 2 of these belt buckles which I received in 1980 at the convention in NOLA. I don't know if they are rare or if they're worth anything, but I've held onto them with the memories of that night.
Hi, These do not pop up often. To someone who loves President Reagan the man, this buckle would be nice to have and wear. I did find a new one listed and paid, I think, $45.00. The one from 1984 with the President and VP George Bush shown on opposite ends of the buckle has eluded me, but I am hopeful as someone who will wear it proudly as a volunteer at the Reagan Ranch Center. The one like yours always brings smiles. All the best and nice to see your passion!
