Hello and welcome! My name is Doris.
I have been an antiques collector, dealer and appraiser for over 56 years.
I will be pleased to help you.

Does it have the original tags?

I look forward to your reply.

Thank you for the image. It really helped.

I found where a first edition Ty made Princess Diana memorial beanie baby is for sale now for $750. It, too, has original tags and is in mint condition.

So, we can safely assume that yours would have a retail price of $750 as well.

A private seller to a dealer or at auction can expect 30-60% of retail value.

I hope I have helped you.
