The Turtledoves with Box and Cert
Photo © Copyright Crystal Fanatics Club, Inc.
The Annual Edition Turtledoves “Amour” are a beautiful piece of art, displaying two Turtledoves lovingly touching each other. They are the third and final issue of the ‘Caring & Sharing’ Trilogy.
Designed by Adi Stocker, the Turtledoves are 3 1/2 inches (90mm) tall in size, and like the AE Woodpeckers, they were hand-assembled, so you could easily find them in varying positions. They carry the Swan Logo with SCS engraved on them. Issued and Retired in 1989, they retailed at $195.
The current secondary market value is approximately $675, according to the ‘experts’.
I wish I could tell you that our beloved annual editions are indeed worth that much. A review of the current resales on eBay shows they have sold for:
$275 MIB (mint in box) actually hand signed by Adi Stocker
They did not sell at $400, $674.99, & $425.00 respectively.
On the other hand, if you are a Buyer, you can get these issues at some pretty fantastic prices.
Noteworthy: An ‘expert’ can tell you how much anything is worth, but if you can’t sell it for that price, the valuation is pretty much worthless.
