I see on Minnieland that a first version of the Carolina parrot is valued at 3600 dollars. I have a 2nd version or later.
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Joe Flynn who does research on Audubons says that 40 octavos out of more than 500 octavos have the most value. The Carolina parrot is in this grouping of 40 Audubons to own.
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Usually the large version of the Carolina Parrots usually sells in excess of 100000.00 at the retail level.
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
On the Minnieland site the Carolina parrot has the highest value of any octavos listed. The average valuation looks like 250 dollars for the average octavo.
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Usually the top 40 octavo have a valuation of over 1000 dollars at the retail level. Joe Flynn discussion.
