Measures approx 3 1/4" tall. Colors shipped are the same as those shown. All Barclay figures are painted with a gloss enamel finish for that classic "tinplate" look. If you prefer a more realistic finish, just spray with "Dul Cote", which is available at any hobby shop. Originally made by the All-Nu Company, ca. 1940. Originals of any All-Nu figure are considered to be the "Holy Grail" of soldier collecting - This particular piece is one of the raest of the rare, so much so, that many speculate on its production, believing surviving examples to be no more than prototypes and samples. Only 4 originals are known to exist! We sculpted a new master, using pictures in collector books as our guide, and made new molds from it!
