Riverboat Gambler (Mississippi Riverboat Gambler)

Experimental model of a man with a Western style hat holding a hand of cards. This would have been one of the last models produced by Bossons. There are no known completed examples in existence.

This unpainted model was sent over by the Bossons Company to the St. Louis convention in 1994. The head seemed too large for the body. The model was near completion and was intended to be distributed in North America only.
Riverboat Gambler and the Gamekeeper are the only known heads that may never have been completed
