Long live the...QUEEN

Yes, here she is - the Silver Queen. 

You've no doubt heard of the Silver King - golf collecting's most popular advertising figure that was produced in the 1920s. As few as 10, or perhaps are many as 20, original Silver King figures are believed to exist. 

But the true Holy Grail is his Queen. The Silver Queen was produced before the Silver King, and a scant few remain. The number of Silver Queens that exist is often cited as 3. Only one other Silver Queen has ever surfaced, and that example sold for over $71,000 back in our Winter 2018 Auction. 

16 5/8" tall (a few inches taller than the Silver King). Base is 8" x 6" x 2" tall. Original paint. 2 pounds, 12 ounces. Extraordinary condition.
