Pair of Western Hartland Statues, One in its Original Box: Robert E. Lee and Sgt. Preston of the Yukon
Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $296
This exceptional high-grade collection of Western Hartland figures is comprised of Robert E. Lee and Sgt. Preston of the Yukon, each complete or near complete with its original accessories, tag, and box (the Sgt. Preston box is a reproduction). 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. The two sets offered here represent duplicates within our consignor's collection; however, each would most likely represent a substantial upgrade for many collectors. 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 Robert E. Lee and Traveller #808. Near complete with original saddle, reins, sword, hat, flag, tag, and box (missing cinch). Figures and accessories: "8." Tag: "3." Box: "8.5." 2) 1) Sgt. Preston and his horse Rex #804. Near complete with original saddle, reins, hat, gun, flag (missing its crown), and box (missing lanyard, cinch, and tag). Figures and accessories: "7.5." Box (reproduction): "9.5." Total: 2 figures with boxes (one a reproduction). Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $296
