1950s Western Hartland Statue Collection in Original Boxes (4): Cochise, Tom Jeffords, Chief Thunderbird, and Brave Eagle
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $830
This exceptional high-grade collection of Western Hartland figures is comprised of Cochise, Tom Jeffords, Chief Thunderbird, and Brave Eagle, 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) Cochise and his horse #816. Near-complete with original saddle, rifle, tag, and box. Missing the reins and gun. Figures and accessories: "8.5." Tag: "9." Box: "8.5." 2) Tom Jeffords and his horse #821. Complete with original hat, gun, saddle, reins, rifle, knife, tag, and box. Figures and accessories: reins are torn; otherwise "9.5." Tag: "7." Box: "9." 3) Chief Thunderbird and North Wind #813.
