This message came from an owner of Scriver bronzes who was robbed.  I post it here so that people can watch for the particular bronzes and also keep their guard up.  If you spot one of these bronzes, you could contact me and I’ll let the owner know.

On Monday July 29, 2013 my home was robbed during the day.  One of the items that was taken was the miniature bronze of the Explorers of the Portage -- #579 of 1000.  It was given to my son as a gift from his late great-great aunt.  

I live approximately 13 miles north of Great Falls in a rural farming community.  I’ve been keeping an eye out on craigslist and ebay, and I have contacted all pawn shops in Great Falls, Havre, Helena and Lewistown, as well as any antique/collectible type stores in Great Falls.  I have also contacted all of our local galleries.

Along with this bronze, they also took a Heikka “Wapiti” #3 of 100 and three Terry Mimnaugh “Boy Scout Law” bronzes, one was #14 of 100 and the other two were #15 of 100.
