Five Gaiter, Commander w/ Original Box and 1979 Brochure - Ribbon-Tip Variation
The Five Gaiter has been a popular model since it debuted in the early 1960s. The sorrel was discontinued in 1986. He wears a soft tan body with darker mane and tail, four socks and an airbrushed bald face. His ribbons are red-on-white, and as one of the older versions of this mold, he still has the ribbon tip sticking up above his crest, which was lost in later uses of the mold.
This fellow is in Excellent condition with one small rub on his left hip, hoof edge rubs and tiny eartip and tail tip rubs. He has a bit of extra plastic on the bottom of his left jawline. He features well-painted red-on-white ribbons and a really interesting ribbon tip which appears to have been partially removed at the factory before painting. Close-ups included... It looks like his artist started to sand it off while sanding seams, then realized it was supposed to be there and stopped, resulting in a unique, hook-shaped ribbon tip. He comes with his original cardboard box and a 1979 brochure.
