I have a set of 3 Caithness paperweights designed be Colin

Customer Question

I have a set of 3 Caithness paperweights designed be Colin Terris entitled Faith, Hope, and Charity. The set was issued in 1981 and I bought them in the UK. I would like to know their current value, but have been unable to find a similar set anywhere, including eBay. This was a limited edition of 250, but was capped at 237. I learned this from my inquiry to Caithness. Can you give me an idea of the set value? Many thanks.

Hi,
Thank You for your question, my name is***** am a verified expert and will be working with you today. These originally sold for about $200 each. Unfortunately, the resale value is much less. Their current value is $100-150 at auction. Here is a link to an auction in June 2014 where a set of 3 in the original box only brought 40Bp about $70 at at the time.

This is rather low but I think you will get the idea.
Thank you,
