General Garibaldi and his Redshirts 1860 1960 commerative plastic soldiers

Dear John, Leonard, Sig. Nannetti, James, Keith, and Darryl:

I continue my search for the Garibaldi figures that were issued in Italy for the 1960 commemoration of the landing of the 1000 red-shirts in Sicily, but have been unsuccessful.

I've sent you an attachment of the 45mm red plastic figures consisting of two of the soldiers that another dealer has listed on his site, and the figure of Garibaldi that I own.

Any information as to the manufacturer, who may have the molds now, or if there are any available with your vast sources of collectors, would be appreciated.

Thanks for your help

Mike Bacarella
