Welcome to the forums! I did some research on the 529A and have some info for you.
The 529A Buckskins were first introduced in the 1988 catalogue. There were seven variations offered. Alligator-529A1-15000, Oyster Eel-529E1-6500, Burgundy Eel-529E2-7000, Peanut Brittle Lizard-529L1-8000, Black Shark-529S1-9000, Burgundy Shark-529S2-1500, Natural Shark-529S3-1500. 1991 is the last Buck catalogue they appeared in. Prices ranged from about $48 for the alligator to $35 for most of the others.
Hope this helps.
