Bronze Boone and Crockett number four typical elk by Jack Logozzo, 419 4/8, limited edition 126/750, 1985

Limited edition bronze of Fred Mercer’s 1958 Montana bull elk created in 1985 for the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation by Jack Logozzo. At that time the Mercer bull, scoring 419 4/8, was the fourth largest typical in the Boone and Crockett Club’s Records of North American Big Game. It is now number nine. This particular casting is number 126/750 and is supported by a Certificate of Authenticity signed by the artist. (The RMEF initially commissioned four artists to recreate the top four Boone and Crockett Club bulls as bookend sets, although some were sold individually. The walnut base of this bronze has been altered from its original configuration and modified into a wall mount. These bronzes have long since sold out.) DIMENSIONS: In approximate inches, 16 (H) x 11 (W) x 11.5 (D). CONDITION: Exceptional, with base altered from original configuration and modestly cracked at top from attaching screw which passes through the extension (cannot be seen from front). INCLUSION: Certificate of Authenticity signed by artist. The price is firm and layaway is available. $750 plus shipping.
