WACO, Texas — The out­fit Lone Ranger ac­tor Clay­ton Moore wore when he made ap­pear­ances as the char­ac­ter af­ter re­tir­ing from tele­vi­sion is go­ing up for auc­tion in Texas. Waco-based A&S Auc­tion Co. will of­fer up the items to­day. Moore, who died in 1999, played the masked law­man on the ABC tele­vi­sion se­ries The Lone Ranger from 1949 to 1957. The auc­tion house says that for years af­ter re­tir­ing from tele­vi­sion, Moore made pub­lic ap­pear­ances in char­ac­ter at events in­clud­ing fairs. His out­fit in­cluded a pow­der-blue shirt and pants, red ker­chief and Stet­son hat. He also wore boots, a gun belt and car­ried Colt pis­tols made es­pe­cially for him. The items spent more than a decade in the collection of a late Texas busi­ness­man whose fam­ily is of­fer­ing the items.
