Customer Question

JA: Hi. What seems to be the problem?
Customer: I have a collectible Gund Bear
JA: Don't you just love the idea of finding something valuable in your attic? I do, but I think all I have up there is junk my brothers abandoned before they left home. Always a good idea to check things with the Antiques Appraiser, though. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.
Customer: This is the ceramic Gund "Stitch" Bear im refering to. I havent been to find another one like it anywhere online and i cant even find a thread one on the subject matter i have. The ceramic bear has a white bear holding baby blocks! There are 4 blocks the bear is holding, that are supposed to spell BABY that i have learned. But on the one that i have it spells BAAY. It appears to me that this maybe in fact a manufa turing error of some sort. If you could please help me qith this as i have exhausted all my resources.
JA: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?
Customer: How rare is this, is my main question and is it common or uncommon?
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Antiques Appraiser about your situation and then connect you two.
