1938 R83A Gum, Inc. "Lone Ranger" Premiums Complete Set (5) Plus Store Advertising Promo Sheet
Starting Bid - $400, Sold For - $1,440
Extremely attractive complete set of all five R83A Gum, Inc., “Lone Ranger” premiums along with a rare store advertising promo sheet. Regarded by collectors as among the most visually appealing of all 1930s premiums, the R83A series is comprised of five 8 by 10-inch premiums depicting scenes from The Lone Ranger film in brilliant color and detail. The reverse features a description of the scene, a checklist of the titles included in the series, and instructions on how to obtain and display the premiums. These premiums are also particularly rare, which is no doubt related to how they were distributed. A complete set could be obtained for twenty-five wrappers and ten cents. "Lone Ranger" premiums are often encountered in modest grade due to their size. The offered premiums are all outstanding in appearance, presenting as Excellent (or better!), but technically grade slightly more modestly due to very light wrinkling at the top left corner in the thin stock of each premium. The colors on all five premiums remain vibrant. The accompanying advertising sheet also presents as Excellent, with light touches of wear to the corners and a small wrinkle in the lower right. The items in this lot were recently discovered by our consignor at a garage sale, along with an additional promo sheet, which appears individually in this auction. This complete set of premiums and one advertising sheet are ideal for display and would make an outstanding accompaniment to the classic smaller-format R83 Gum, Inc., “Lone Ranger” set (as intended by Gum, Inc.) or significant addition to any nonsport collection. Total: 5 premiums and 1 advertising sheet. SOLD FOR $1,440
