Authenticast Comet Australian Infantry Walking 1946 5 pieces from set 512 54mm. Condition very good 5 figures, loose in box, missing one figure, some minor paint wear, box is stained and missing end label. Authenticast and Authenticast Comet Gaeltacht Industries were names the soldiers went under. Despite the United States location of the firm, Authenticast was a truly international venture. Sweden's Holger Ericksson was brouth to the company's attention by fellow countryman Curt Wennberg, an attache to the United States who became associated with Coment during the war, probably because of the firm's work for the government. Eriksson's soldiers have a rough hewn dash that only Manoil's Walter Baetz approached, in his own distinctivety, that has attrached collectors since 1946, when Authenticast first appeared on the market.
Great collectible or gift for a friend
