Clayton Moore’s Lone Ranger Costume Rides off into the Sunset for $195,000

WACO, Texas – A Lone Ranger costume worn by actor Clayton Moore in the classic television series sold at auction on Saturday, gaveling for $195,000 at A & S Auction Company.

The lot contains all of the essentials that make up the iconic Lone Ranger costume including his sky blue shirt and pants, red handkerchief, black boots, and custom gun rig.  The only thing the sale is missing is the Lone Ranger’s disguise – his black eye mask.  Experts estimated that the costume would lasso in $150,000 only for the auctioneers to be pleasantly surprised when the winning bid came in $45,000 over the low estimate.
