A costume Clayton Moore wore as the title character in classic Tv series The Lone Ranger has sold at auction for $195,000 (£113,901).
The ensemble donned by the masked former Texas Ranger in the popular U.S. series went under the hammer on Saturday (12Jul14), through Waco, Texas-based auction house A & S Auction Co.
An undisclosed buyer purchased the outfit, which included matching light blue shirt and pants, a red kerchief, Stetson hat, cowboy boots and a belt holster which holds two custom-made Colt pistols.
Organisers at the auction house originally set the price at $150,000 (£87,611), but the Tv artifact eventually sold for $45,000 (£26,283) more than the estimate.
The Lone Ranger character debuted in a radio show in 1933, spawning a series of books, comic books, movies, and the Tv series starring Moore, which ran from 1949 to 1957.
