This Tom Clark "Woodspirits" is Jesse # 5086 He is part of the train series. He is retired and has the authentic Tom Clark marks. Jesse is a Virgo and was first produced in 1989.
Jesse's story reads...
"(Virgo, 1989) Some collectors may be surprised that Jesse is joining my series of Woodspirits riding on train car's. But the great train robberies are part of the glory days of train's in the Old West. Jesse is named for Jesse James, an unusual American legendary figure. This little Jesse found a toy gun in the woods. Is he really holding up the train, or is he just playing ? One clue is the twig standing by his right foot - it's a stick up ! Jesse's coin is a good luck souvenir showing a brace of pistols. But notice that poor Jesse has no money or jewels. He'd better watch out for the marshall, who will appear next year on a new train car behind Jesse".
