Cousin Sam was given to collectors who attended the HK CORRAL collector event held in Phoenix, Arizona, in October 2006. The total edition size for the event piece was only 225. The prototype auctioned here is one of five that were made; the other four were given as prizes at the event.

This piece was carved by Monique Baldwin in 2004, originally as an entry in the Covets series. The Cousin Sam prototype in this auction is the original version of the piece, before any changes were made for the event.
 

  • The snake on this Cousin Sam prototype is eyeing an apple; this is a reference to the story of the snake in the Garden of Eden. The regular piece has the snake eyeing a boot, in honor of the western theme of the HK CORRAL event.
