Osito was "born" in 1999, and not having a date is considered an error, but a relatively common error. A lot of them have been offered for sale. There are a variety of errors possible on Osito--looks like it was a mistake-prone version!

You'll see people asking very high prices on eBay for "error" Ositos, $500 or more. However, I've gone through the actual records of completed sales over the past 5 years, from various seller sites. The highest completed sale for an error Osito was $15.00, last May.

I'm sorry for any disappointment.
