Just sold Duke Seifried's super rare Blue enamel RPGA buckle at Gen-Con.  

He kept telling me he had another one, but couldn't find it.  I asked if he looked on his belts.  There it was.  

Not another Blue enamel, but not sure what it is.  Can't find anything that looks like it online.  

Does that mean it's SUPER rare, or so common it's not collectable?

I don't recall how many of each I made, and I had forgotten that one. I do recall it.
Would have to personally examine to verify authenticity, but given that (ie since it's Uncle Duke's):
Ultra-rare and possibly unique. Quite possibly a test pour of that hue.

It's been 35 years, forgive me...
ps: mine is green

I believe those are more common.  I know someone here that has the red enamel TSR buckle in pewter and another one in bronze.

All of the enameled buckles are a lot more rare than the plain buckles.  At least as far as I can see from what has come up on eBay, the red ones seem more common than the green.  I have each of the buckles Melnibonean pictured below (several of which I acquired from him).  The enameled ones also have the advantage of being a lot harder to fake.  Unlike the plain buckles.  Re: Interesting eBay alert! TSR belt buckles

For the record, I took a very close look at Duke's buckle sold at Gen Con.  It is green enamel, not blue, same color as the one I have.  I have yet to see a blue enamel buckle.

Here's the pic of the buckle just sold at gen con.

That green/blue enamel is like my car.  Is it blueish green or is it greenish blue?  You tell me.

Bracton and I really inspected it closely at Gen Con.  It was really hard to tell the color when it was in the plastic bag and when the light was not very good.  When you get it into a good light, it is definitely green.

Wow.   8O   Either this was an aberration, or prices on the buckles are skyrocketing.  That one isn't even all that rare (even when you disregard the forgeries).
