    Uncle Scrooge The Expert Limited Edition Figurine Signed by Carl Barks #24/25 (Another Rainbow, undated). Uncle Scrooge closely scrutinizes a 1908 gold Double Eagle as he sits atop a pile of other coins, gold bars, and wads of greenbacks, in this fantastically detailed figurine. Scrooge is composed of hand-decorated bone china porcelain, with painted metal coins and cash; the plinth is made of cherrywood, with a felt bottom. The coin Scrooge is holding is a remarkably detailed miniature of a real 1908 Saint-Gaudens $20 gold piece, and is made of real 24-karat gold mined from a creek near the Yukon location where Scrooge first made his fortune, Dawson City. It measures approximately 10.75" tall, with a circumference of 11.5", and is in Excellent condition.

    Basing this design on his own 1975 painting, Carl Barks made a number of sketches showing Scrooge as he sat from all angles, and the end result is a perfect 3-D replica of Barks' art. Each piece was signed in a different area; this one has the gold ink signature along Scrooge's right, on the edge of his red coat. Only 25 regular editions were produced, plus three artist's proofs, and all production molds were destroyed to ensure no further editions would be released. It's a fantastic item for the ultimate fan of "Unca" Carl's comic stories -- and who doesn't love reading those classic Uncle Scrooge adventures? Requires third party shipping. From the Kerby Confer Collection.
