Rooster Cogburn B 1975
This is an alternate Rooster Cogburn mug. We conclude it was not made for True Grit as this is a Ketchum mug and the True Grit mugs were made by the Mug Shop. While this mug has the solid gold handle, we have also seen a version with the striped handle. Jeff from Pennsylvania tells us this Rooster Cogburn mug was from the Bar 26 ranch John Wayne owned with Louis Johnson because of the steer on the back and other items Jeff owns from the ranch with the same logo.

“This is the real deal, with pin strip gold handle which is more collectible, and harder to find. I would say this mug is in near mint condition. No cracks, chips or stains. No wear on gold on handle. “
This is the most we've ever seen paid for this mug... the "record". Average values are considerably less, usually less than half.
