1950s Western Hartland Statue "Generals" Collection in Original Boxes (3): George Custer, George Washington, and Robert E. Lee
Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $711
This exceptional high-grade collection of Western Hartland figures is comprised of three generals: George Custer, George Washington, and Robert E. Lee, each 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) General George Custer and his horse #814. Complete with original saddle, reins, sword, hat, gun, flag, tag, and box. Figures and accessories: "8." Tag: "9.5." Box: "9.5." 2) General George Washington and Ajax #815. Complete with original saddle, reins, sword, hat, flag, tag, and box. Figures and accessories: "8." Tag: "9.5." Box: "6.5," with a large abrasion and handwritten price on the reverse. 3) General Robert E. Lee and Traveller (rare head-down pose) #808. Complete with original saddle, reins, cinch, sword, hat, flag, tag, and box. Figures and accessories: "9.5." Tag: "9.5." Box: "8.5." Total: 3 figures with boxes. Reserve $300. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $711
