Seven for the dwarf lords in their halls of stone.
Nine for the mortal men doom to die.
One for the dark lord on his throne in the land of Mordor where the Shadows lie .
One ring to rule them all.
One ring to find them.
One ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them In the land of Mordor where the Shadows lie."
The one ring to find them all
GREAT AMERICAN BUCKLE COMPANY 1979
I AM LOOKING FOR THESE BELT BUCKLE!!!
I thought I was down to my last buckle when I received an e-mail from an Ent named Jan Boom Fangorn informing me that I was indeed missing several buckles. So in addition to the Saruman belt buckle to finish the complete LOTR set as I believe it to be. I am also looking for the buckles listed below. These buckles were made in 1975 by the Lewis Buckle Co. 1979 by the Great American Buckle Co., by the The McCann and Perth Buckle Cos. I am interested in purchasing all the buckles from any of the companies. I am also interested in any information on any of the sets. I can be reached at the contact information at the top right hand corner of this page.
LEWIS BUCKLE COMPANY 1975
THE SARUMAN BELT BUCKLE
LEWIS "ONE RING" BRASS
IT IS WHAT IS IS.
BILBO McCANN BUCKLE!
FRODO McCANN BUCKLE!
GANDALF PERTH 1
GANDALF PERTH 2
FROM THIS POINT ON THESE ARE ALL BUCKLES THAT I HAVE. HOWEVER I AM DEFINITELY NOT AGAINST BUYING DOUBLES ON ANY OF THEM. IF ANYONE HAS A BETTER SUGGESTION FOR THE SONG THAN LED ZEPPELIN'S RAMBLE ON I AM OPEN TO IDEAS.
"One belt buckle to rule them all"
Bilbo Baggins and his pipe
THE BALROG BELT BUCKLE
THE ARWEN BELT BUCKLE
THIS GREAT VINTAGE BELT BUCKLE FROM 1975 WAS MADE BY THE LEWIS BUCKLE CO. FEATURES BILBO BAGGINS SMOKING A PIPE. IT HAS A VERSE ON THE BACK THAT READS," BY SOME CURIOUS CHANCE ONE MORNING LONG AGO IN THE QUIET OF THE WORLD WHEN THERE WAS LESS NOISE AND MORE GREEN AND THE HOBBITS WERE STILL NUMEROUS AND PROSPEROUS AND BILBO BAGGINS WAS SITTING AT HIS DOOR AFTER BREAKFAST SMOKING AN ENORMOUS LONG WOODEN PIPE THAT REACHED NEARLY DOWN TO HIS WOOLY TOES (NEATLY BRUSHED) GANDALF CAME BY...."
"SO IT WAS THAT FRODO SAW HER WHOM FEW MORTALS HAD SEEN;
ARWEN DAUGHTER OF ELROND, IN WHOM IT IS SAID THAT THE LIKENESS OF LUTHIEN HAD COME ON EARTH AGAIN; AND SHE WAS CALLED UNDOMIEL, FOR SHE WAS THE EVENSTAR OF HER PEOPLE.
YOUNG SHE WAS AND NOT SO... AND THOUGHT AND KNOWLEDGE WERE IN HER GLANCE, AS ONE WHO HAS KNOW MANY THINGS THAT THE YEARS BRING"
"AT THAT MOMENT GANDALF LIFTED HIS STAFF AND CRYING ALOUD HE SMOTE THE BRIDGE BEFORE HIM.
With a terrible cry, the Balrog fell forward and it's shadow plunged down and vanished.But even as it fell it swung it's whip and the thongs lashed and curled about the wizard's knees dragging him to the brink.
"FLY, YOU FOOLS! HE CRIED, AND WAS GONE."
THE ONE THAT STARTED IT ALL!!!
I bought the original buckle called Isildur's Bane at a thrift center because I liked it.
Then like a fool I wore it to work and ruined it. I looked for a long time to find a replacement. I finally found one and started this collection.
Now I have five, one Lewis Pewter buckle, one Brass and Pewter Great Americanfor the collection, and two Lewis Pewter buckles to wear.
THE ONE RING BUCKLE BRASS
BALROG BUCKLE - BRASS
Now these four buckles are a set from the 1979 Tolkien Enterprises. I believe they were released with the cartoon version of The Hobbit. They are normally available on EBay and come in the boxes. I do not have the round version.
The Rectangular LOTR buckle
The Gandalf belt buckle.
The Gollum belt buckle
The round Gandalf belt buckle on the left is made by the John E. McCann Buckle Co. of Wenham, MA. And I need the Bilbo and Frodo versions to go with Gandalf. These buckles are made of pewter as a lot of these buckles are.
The next Gandalf buckle is made by The Perth Buckle Co. in 1978
The other buckle is just a cool looking wizard type buckle that could be Gandalf or even Merlin maybe. It is a 1979 version N-145 from the Bergamont Brass Works even though this buckle appears to be made of pewter.
And the last buckle is a brass Merlin made by The Beardsley Buckle Co. of Bloomington, Indiana.
THE THREE BUCKLES ABOVE THIS LINE AND THE FOUR BUCKLES BELOW THIS LINE ARE THE SEVEN BUCKLE THAT I AM CURRENTLY LOOKING FOR. AND ANYTHING ELSE AS WELL! ANY LEADS OR HELP WILL BE GREATLY APPRECIATED. THANKS.
The Round LOTR buckle
These four buckles have been listerd EBay.
I believe they are related to the 2001 - 2003 movie release of the LOTR Triology.
They are nice looking buckles just not the quality of the Lewis and the other older buckles.
I have the first two and have decided not to collect the other two as of right now.
