Gold for AnkerIn 1884 Richter launches the first series with four different stone building sets. They are displayed at various exhibitions and win numerous awards. Just one year later Richter proudly alludes to the fact in his catalogue that his Anker Stone Building Set won 15 gold medals. In 1887 the first Special Anker Edition is released in honour of the 10-year papacy of Pope Leo XII: a huge true to scale model of the house where Pope Leo the XII was born.
