The cast iron figure of a deer with clover shape trigger on spring-loaded shaft floating near the chest, and rare mechanism to create a rocking action while traveling on the gallery conveyor. A difficult 'bullseye' strike on the rocking figure would release and drop the head at the neck pivot point. This rare rocking target with mechanism intact is the only known example of its type. Signed in the casting back side. This is the only example the Tuckers have seen or heard of in their 30 years of collecting.
