The Minute Man statue was designed by the same sculptor who designed the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC: Daniel Chester French. Minute Man is located in Concord Massachusetts. Bookends of the Minute Man are all quite rare. Because the figural examples of The Minute Man (usually made of grey metal) have projecting parts that are susceptible to breakage, surviving sets that are intact are unusual.
A 3-dimensional replica of Minute Man is manufactured by Jennings Brothers. The makers of this of this set are unknown.
