Hi Paul. If he has a sword in one hand and a pistol in the other there is a good chance he might be an Alberken (pre-Minifigs S range) figure. Are ther any markings anywhere on the base? And if you have a picture you could sens it to me using the e-mail link on the front page of the blog (under contact the old metal detector).

If it is Alberken, I'm just thinking how to do something about these and other early Minifigs (S range) figures. This is likley to be on a second blog, because the number of categories on the Hinton one is getting quite long

Regards

Clive
