Hey all, a cousin of mine was cleaning out an attic of an elderly woman. Taking it all to the trash for her. He ran across an old bag and in it was a hand carved 12" G.I. Joe figure. He said he thought it was carved out of wood. It is a real item and he is supposed to get it and let me see it. His father in law said he has it and said something about they gave them out to soldiers who where in Nam. and got some kind of medal. Anyone got any ideas what it might be? They said even the hands are carved. I saw the '64 prototype and it looks close to what he was describing to me. They also said the only other one they could find on the net sold for $108,000. I'm just trying to get some ideas as to what it could be. He wants me to put it on E-Bay and see what it will bring and i will as soon as he gets it to me. If it is something special like that. I honestly don't know for sure though what it is. As soon as he brings it i will photo it and upload the pics. See if anyone knows what it is for sure. Thanks!!!
