Another Ventriloquist Catalogue by Jack Coats

Price List


I have to thank Gary Koepke again because he has decided to give us all the opportunity to see a very early sales brochure from Jack Coats which dates from the 1960’s. Gary told me this catalogue was from before he met Jack.

Just check out those prices. I am going to power up the way back machine right now!!

    When I got my first price list from Jack back in late 1970, the base price for a figure with moving mouth was $185. Self centering moving eyes added another $25, one winker $25, and two winkers was $37.50. However raising eyebrows was reduced to $10. I wish I would have had a “real job” back then… I’d have a dozen more figures!

    I forgot to mention that all figures were one of a kind, post paid in the US, and came fully dressed!

    I like Gary Koepke figures by Jack Coats best of all.
