I was wondering if any of y'all have a tin belt buckle like the ones sold through EJ Thomas that you'd be willing to part with? I would just buy one from him directly, but its been a month since I first inquired about one with still no response.

I know you are after tin Rocky- but Missouri Boot & Shoe has sheet copper and brass ones available if that doesn't pan out.

Check with Jeremy Ray or Sean Cooper of Mossy Creek Mercantile. Jeremy was making those for a while. Axel Ulrich made the tin plates for Bill Lomas at EJT so you may also check with Nick Duvall since he was getting some Axel stuff also

You could check with James Country Sutlery out of liberty, mo. They are made by a local infantrymen and look alright, they don't have wire hooks on the back though. Reliability issues like the orginals. They have bent sheet hooks. I have a square corner and a clipped corner both in brass that have held up very well and look pretty good. Some very shiny and some dull $10, but waiting on copper.

I still have my pattern for my tin buckles. I've not made any for a while now cause no one was inquiring about any. If interested, drop me a line. I will charge $50 plus shipping for them. They are made out of plain tin with folded tin hooks like the originals that I have studied. They are good and strong hooks. Derrick Pugh still has one that has held up for almost 7 years now.
