It's fairly large and visually impressive, measuring 27" x 16" and still having bright, vivid and largely saturated enamel colors. The lithographic printed graphic iconography is crisp and not interrupted by blow-outs, severe oxidation, deep abrasions or large episodes of rust lines or pools.The back of the board has folded edges that turn back against the unpainted tin. The image is one of the Lone Ranger, abruptly pulling back the reins of his famous white horse Silver, as if stopping on a dime or startled by something menacing and life-threatening, since he has his revolver in his right hand, apparently ready to pop off a few rounds. The board's populated with various round strike targets, with various denominational prize amounts, ready to be hit by a barrage of suction tipped darts, shot from a toy gun at some distance away.
