Background:

We’ve been sorting and decluttering and this figure is from my partner’sold toy collection from the mid1960s and early 1970’s. He played with them all those years ago, but he was a careful boy and kept all the pieces safe from the hoover! Made by Britains, this 1:32 scale, painted plastic figure has moveable parts and pieces that can be swapped to personalize. We’ve put them together as accurately as we can and are selling them individually so that they can be added to collections. Although the figures have been stored carefully in lofts and garages of our smoke and pet free homes over the years, they are getting fragile now and need the care of an enthusiast rather than to be used as toys. They are mostly American cowboys, Indians and 7th cavalry men with various weapons and accessories, some on horseback. I’ll pack them well and send them 2nd class postage or airmail if appropriate. You can arrange to collect them in person if you wish.

This Figure: captured US cowboy, hands tied behind his back, 2 holstered guns, on palamino horse. Marked BRITAINS LTD ENGLAND on horses

underbelly. We believe this one is quite rare. Good condition, considering his age, no scuffs or damage.
