Five Gaiter ~ Commander, Glossy Palomino
Chris Hess sculpted the charismatic Five Gaiter model in 1961. This gorgeous Palomino was made between 1962 and 1971. They feature four high socks, a bald face, and yellow ribbon with red Xs. As one of the early releases, the Palomino still has the ribbon-end sticking out past his mane, which is missing on later models.
This fellow is in Very Good condition with several small rubs on his body and a light grey line about an inch long on the right side of his barrel which might come off. He features shell hooves, muzzle pinking and a beautiful glossy finish. Yellowing is slight on this guy, and he displays beautifully. This mold is known to often be tippy, so we recommend Museum Putty as cheap insurance.
