Very cool! I am a collectibles re-seller and once in a while I come across something like that which I collect. I've been looking but no great GSD finds so far. For some reason lots of Toucans but no GSD's - go figure

Thanks all for lookin' in. The Hartland sets are from my childhood as are most of the dogs. Hartland collecting and GSD figure collecting has been life long. I also restore and repair them for fellow collectors. Dealers, Flea Markets, Tag Sales, Antique and Gift Shops, then Ebay. Ebay did help me complete my Hartland sets. Small pieces are very hard to find.
One of my favorite Westerns as a kid was Trackdown starring Robert Culp as Hoby Gilman Texas Ranger. How my boy Hoby got his name.
