Nice one -- when my brother & I got our first AD&D boxed set, it was the halflings, and this guy was Frodo with Sting!
Grenadier's AD&D Halflings boxed set was my second set of miniatures. My next door neighbor used him as his Halfling Thief character for years while I DMed. I think he made it to 9th or 10th level before I left for college.
