This is part of the fabulous collection of 144 vintage and antique mudmen that had been lovingly collected over many decades. I purchased all 144 pieces, all in Very Good to Excellent Condition. I will be listing all of them, and of course will consider a reduced price if one were to purchase all or a large number of them. I am listing them at very affordable prices individually as well.
When buying more than one item, we combine shipping. We also try to discount orders for multiple items.
