I did not realize that hitting the enter was going to send;
Hello, I did not realize that hitting the enter was going to send; sorry. I have a series of Hummel Figurines that my mother had for a number of years that I am trying to authenticate and determine their value. I purchased the two resource guides that you offer and have been trying to figure out what is what. These figurines do not have the kind of markings that I see in your guide. They do have the signature of Hummel on the base. The one I am looking at now has a number 63 stamped on the base and a marking that looks like a quill pen in an ink pot. Other than those, the only marking is the word 'Germany' on the underside. I wish that your guide had pictures of the pieces; it would help me figure things out. Also, what do the various categories mean, i.e. TMK 1, 2 etc.? I did not see that in the guide... maybe I did not look hard enough. I have pictures of all of the pieces, there are 18 pieces. … read more
