Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser, and I'd be happy to help.
What the bear made in China or Indonesia?
OK, on the heart hang tag, under the line "will be donated to the" is there a space before the line "Diana, Princess of Wales," or is it right on top of it with no space between the two lines?
OK, thanks. So what you have is the second edition of the Princess Diana. The first had the PVC pellets. TY switched to PE pellets during the period when the Princess Diana was first being produced.
The average value for this PE version from China is $16.
Please let me know if I can help further.
The true first edition bears had PVC pellets. That said, they are not nearly as valuable as people think--even though you may see astronomical eBay asking prices, they rarely sell above $50.
What you have is the second set, as Ty stopped using PVC pellets during the early production of the Princess Diana and switched to PE for environmental reasons. The average selling price is around $15.
