I first posted this figure, along with a companion piece by the same artist, here.
At that time, I assumed because of the angle of the shot that this figure was missing it's left arm. Well, I was lucky enough to recently acquire the piece and I'm happy to report that both arms are indeed intact. I thought I'd post some detail pictures as well.
If anyone's interested, the companion piece is currently available at One Good Eye Antiques. I would love to reunite them, but my funds are a little low right now....as always.

An 8-year-old boy named Brian Ingram discovered three bundles of deteriorating $20 bills on the shore of the Columbia River near Portland, Ore., in 1980. The money turned out to be some of the $200,000 ransom D.B. Cooper was carrying when he parachuted from a plane after a 1971 hijacking.
Fifteen of the bills will be auctioned through Heritage Auction Galleries.
