1950s Western Hartland Statue Collection in Original Boxes (3): The Lone Ranger (2 Versions) and Tonto
Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $593
This high-grade collection of three Western Hartland figures is comprised of two different versions of The Lone Ranger (Champ and Traditional), and Tonto, each complete or near complete with its original accessories, tag, and box. As most collectors know, the original tags and boxes are exceedingly rare, especially in high-grade, and are seldom offered at public sale. All of the Western Hartland figures in this auction originate from an extremely advanced collection that was assembled with condition in mind, and as such, most of the figures offered here rank among the finest examples we have ever seen. It should be noted that with respect to the boxes, all display a few minor creases as a result of normal handling wear, but nearly all of those offered in this auction are far superior to other known examples and most appear much as they did when originally issued. In an effort to remain consistent, all of the items have been graded on a scale of "1" to "10." 1) Lone Ranger and Silver (Champs) #801-LR. Complete with original saddle, reins, hat, guns (2), and box (no tag). Figures and accessories: "8.5." Box: light water staining on the lid that is only visible from the interior; otherwise "8." 2) Lone Ranger and Silver (Traditional) #801-LR. Complete with original saddle, reins, hat, guns (2), tag, brochure, and box (the guns and hat remain sealed in their original cellophane packaging). Figures and accessories: "9.5." Tag: "9." Box: "9," slight abrasion on base where the original price tag was removed. 3) Tonto and Scout #805. Complete with original saddle, reins, head feather, gun, knife, tag, and box. Figures and accessories: "10." Tag: "9." Box: "9." Total: 3 figures with boxes. Reserve $300. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $593
