Pair of 1950s Western Hartland Statues: Sgt. O'Rourke and Sgt. Preston (in Original Boxes)
Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $356
Pair of exceptional high-grade Western Hartland figures depicting two members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police: Sgt. Preston of the Yukon and Sgt. Lance O'Rourke, each complete or near complete with its original accessories 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) Sgt. Preston and his horse Rex #804. Near complete with original saddle, cinch, reins, hat, gun, flag, and box (missing lanyard and tag). Figures and accessories: "9." Box: some minor staining on the lid (only visible from the interior); otherwise "8." 2) Sgt. O'Rourke and his horse #804. Complete with original saddle, reins, cinch, gun, hat, and box (no tag issued with this figure). Figures and accessories: "7." Box: "7." Total: 2 figures with boxes. Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $356
