Well, now that you know what is or has been available, maybe its time that you added to your collection. Or maybe its time to dig your treasures out of the trunks in the attic, dust them off and put them on display. 1999 was the 50th anniversary of the Lone Ranger on television and interest in Lone Ranger collectibles increased. A Lone Ranger lunchbox came out in August, 1999 and was filled with candy and is about 7 3/4" x 6" in size. Lone Ranger collectors cards are still available, but you may have to hunt for them at card dealers. A miniature version of the Lone Ranger lunch pail was available as a Christmas ornament in 1997and quickly sold out, but they can still be found on the secondary market at a higher price. The 1998 Hallmark collector lunchpail may still be found if you look hard. The picture is one that I scanned in through a plastic protective covering. The lunch pail is 3/4 size of the original lunchpails. It does not come in a box. Now, its time to head for the attic and dig out those toys and collectables and remember, the original box can be as valuable as the item itself.
