Not from February, but did recently pick up something I always wanted -- this old wood/bat lathe.

Picked up this photograph in trade on the weekend. Would appreciate help dating it - c.1900 is what I am thinking.

Not attributed to the ribbon I already had but a nice companion piece nonetheless.

For some reason, Legendary ended up buying back their example from the consignor, Kent Feddeman, and Doug Allen wanted to defray the expense of that by selling bronze examples. Events intervened (!), though, and the program never got beyond the production of a handful that his wife sold on eBay two years ago, after which the original went to auction with Heritage. Bob, do you know if yours is the Feddeman (Legendary/Heritage) example? If so it should have come with an original photo of Johnson posing for Dunbar with a caption written by Johnson's wife.

Hank, thanks for the information, I was not sure about the details of the "new" statues and I appreciate you filling in the blanks.

I believe mine is fresh to the market as its been with the original owner for 60 or 70 years. It was actually a gift from Walter Johnson to a friend and was passed down from the friend to his daughter etc.

Thanks again

Bob is that the actual picture of your statue? Hank, did all of the original statues that you’ve seen have the W colored red on the hat?
