AHI Brand Toys swashbuckling pirate from Captain Kidd & His Pirates set ref 5600P. This unusual tru-size 65mm jaunty pirate figure is dressed in red coat and yellow trousers with black cuffs, boots and hat. He is lunging and should be holding a cutlass in his right hand.

Captain Kidd can be said to be the most unfortunate pirate ever to sail the high seas! For it was his bad luck to set sail in 1696 as a privateer from New York but, following a change in the law, arrive in the West Indies two years later as an outlaw with everyone gripped by pirate fever. He was eventually returned to England for trial and hanged in London in 1701. The legend of Captain Kidd was made into a popular 1945 film, Captain Kidd starring Charles Laughton as Kidd, Randolph Scott, Barbara Britton and John Carradine.
