Hello,

In order for me to properly assess what you have I will need to see images and clear, in-focus close-ups of the mark

If you had already attached images to your initial posting, they are not showing for me here on my end.

Please send the photos at your convenience. There is not an extra charge to provide more pictures here.

Hello,

Your 27" 99 Handwerck doll can sell for $600 - $700 on today's market.

The doll marked 63 Germany sells for under $100 on today's market.

The doll market currently is relatively flat compared to over a decade ago and before the recession.

If interested in selling these, I highly recommend having them placed at auction at Theriault's, as they specialize in antique dolls. Here is a link for you to their website: https://www.theriaults.com/
