this didn't weigh but I think 48 or 46 lbs I shipped it I just came home from a trip and I'm tired. I do have pictures but it will have to wait. Ronald has some enamel or like a green shirt. I did see on his heal there is tarnish not much yet green.

with out seeing it in a picture? There is a picture of #1 on google it looks just the same as that only the number on it is 15/40 give me a break here i'm not rich yet. I already put out over a hundred bucks and have gotten nothing but you wanting more information. I have the receipt with the artist signature on it and my fathers name written in the artist handwriting. How much is this thing worth at action. Low to High. It said I can get my money back if I'm not satisfied so please satisfy me now. Its pristine a little oxidation on the heal of one cowboy boot. never been polished, sat in the shade the statue is perfectly intact. no breaks scratches on the bronze. there is one tiny nick in the wood couldn't be more than 1/16" x 1/16 "

My name is ***** ***** I am here to help with your question.
Based on comparables, your signed limited edition polychromed bronze of President Ronald Reagan on horseback that was created by Vic Lemmon should carry an auction estimate of $3500 - $5000 on today's market.
