Just think of the gold mine all of our CAS clubs have sitting around between shoots. Polychrome = painted. It wouldn't take much artistic ability to crank a few of these out using some shot out targets. Just put one up for sale at a time to not saturate the market and drive down prices.

Just a thought,
Rev. Chase

Looks kind of like the SASS Marshal when he was younger.  :)

Gives new credence to "one mans trash, another mans treasure."  Who ever dropped 32K on that target is more than welcome to visit my place.  I could use his kind of fertilizer.

I’ve seen a lot worst called “art” that went for a lot more. So if you pay a lot then it’s fine art!  ::)

Lots of things become one man's treasure 50 to 100 years after they were one man's trash.

Fun Fact!

Polychrome
The word is simply used for multi-colored art, or things decorated or having several colors. The term was first used to describe the decoration of wood and stone carving in full color and gold. Much Egyptian, Greek was originally polychrome with sculptures painted in strong colors.

That piece is a great man cave wall hanger, at $32,500 that would be SOME man cave.

I have some old Shooting Galley silhouette steel targets I found, nothing so Pricey as that though!

There is an underscore collector interest in old galleries.

Why do I feel like that piece of art is calling out to my gallery guns.

 :)  Ooooo WOW  ;)

Throw me bodily into the WaBac machine!!!  When growing up, the carnivals would come to town (small town) and invariably brought their "Shooting Gallery" with wonderful prizes you absolutely could not win.

The sound and the smells were wonderful.  I dropped my entire allowance at the shooting galleries.  Every Time.  And . . . . Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Circus came to town on the TRAIN!!  Elephants to put up the Big Top.

Happy Thanksgiving ALL

I remember shooting galleries on the Midway at Fairs   I also remember Disney World had one with real 22 shorts
Frontierland Shooting Gallery, there was a small shooting gallery in Adventureland too. (Safari Shooting Gallery)

Disneyland had one too, Main Street Shooting Gallery opened in July 1955

None survived the last closed in 1985

I deal with this kind of stuff all the time in car parts, all of a sudden something that was 2 dollars new someone pays 100.00 for and off to the price war we go as long as someone puts up the money I guess at that moment that's what it's worth.
