Princess Diana Beanie Baby Bear 1st Edition #1
 1997 PVC China MWMT Rare Lot 



READ THE TRUE HISTORY OF THE TY PRINCESS BEANIE BEAR
Please Scroll Down For The Entire History...

PRINCESS DIANA BEANIE BEAR FIRST EDITION 1997 PVC
MINTY MINT WITH MINT TAGS
ORIGINAL AUTHENTIC ~ THE REAL NUMBER ONE!

THIS FIRST EDITION BEANIE BEAR HAS THE FOLLOWING
* 

Beautiful Royal Purple Polyester lush & plush fur with matching Purple Ribbon.

* Bright Green Stem White Rose
* Red & White PVC Tush Tag with Red Star 

IMPORTANT: PVC pellets were the first pellets! They were replaced with PE pellets. 

Verified through Ty. Therefore the PVC Tush Tags were created first & were the first Princess Beanie Babies made. Sellers with PE tush tags are incorrect. 

DO NOT BE MISLED. Please read the Princess Beanie History below for all the correct information on every detail including photo proof.

* Made In China indicated on the Swing Tag
* Size 9" ~ Top of the ears to bottom of the feet
* Retired December 1997 ~ That's Correct...
* Extremely Limited Edition ~ This is the very first Princess Beanie Edition. Not like the several hundred PE 5th & 6th Editions as seen on eBay claiming to be the First Edition. 
* Minty Mint Condition For Top Dollar Investment 
* 
All #1 First Editions should always have the above details
PLEASE READ THE PRINCESS BEANIE HISTORY BELOW...
 
MESSAGE INSIDE SWING TAG
Like an angel, she came from heaven above
She shared her compassion, her pain, her love
She only stayed with us long enough to teach
The world to share, to give, to reach.


CONDITION ~ MWMT
Minty Mint With Minty Mint Tags!!!
This Beanie Baby comes with a tag protector on the Swing Tag.

PLEASE SCROLL DOWN FOR MORE PICs

BEWARE OF THE TUSH TAGS WITH STAMPED NUMBERS
* Princess Diana Beanie Baby Bears with a number inside the Tush Tags are the worthless mass produced bears that exceed 40 million made! PLEASE DO NOT BE FOOLED BY GREEDY SELLERS giving false information about these bears. The stamped numbers inside these tush tags represent Factory Control Numbers or Assembly Line Numbers & NOTHING ELSE. Many of the honest Beanie Dealers that sold this bear will confirm this. THERE WAS NEVER A FIRST EDITION BEANIE EVER MADE WITH A STAMPED NUMBER THAT MEANT IT WAS A NUMBERED EDITION BEANIE!!!

AND the stamped worthless Princess Diana Beanie Baby Bear will also have the Heart/Swing tag with the very noticeable double split in the paragraph above Diana, Princess Of Wales Memorial Fund, like the 5th Edition PD Beanie Bear. DENOTING THIS IS THE DREADED 6TH EDITION BEAR WITH A STAMPED FACTORY ASSEMBLY LINE NUMBER!!!

NUMBERS DENOTING MASS PRODUCED PD BEANIE BABIES
* 400, 401, 403, 416, 418, 425, 433, 450, 464, 472, 474, 477, 481... I've personally seen several 481s at a local brick & mortar toy store. If anyone else has a stamped number inside the Tush Tag, PLEASE leave the number in the question area so I can include these numbers on this auction ~ Thank You ALL for leaving your numbers ~ Many are repeated (especially #403) proving that these are the 6th Edition PD Beanies with assemblyline numbers.

PRINCESS DIANA 1985 PAPER DOLLS ~ ORIGINAL AUTHENTIC
Also included in this auction is the 1985 Princess Diana & Prince Charles Fashion Paper Doll Set by Tom Tierney. Gorgeous official replicas of their outfits for various royal & informal occasions. Includes Princess Di's spectacular wedding gown &  charming illustrations of Diana with her sons, Prince William & Prince Harry's royal Christening. Size 12.3" x 9.3". Never Been Cut ~ Beautiful & Minty Mint. See PICs...

BEWARE OF AUCTIONS
PROMISING UNVERIFIABLE CHARITABLE DONATIONS

This is an OFFICIAL EBAY GIVING WORKS auction for:
ST. JUDE CHILDREN'S RESEARCH HOSPITAL ~ See Above...


PRINCESS DIANA BEANIE BEARS SHOULD BE AUCTIONED FOR CHARITY
PAY IT FORWARD ~ A GIVING HEART IS A PURE HEART...

This was the original purpose for manufacturing & selling the Princess Diana Beanie Baby Bear! Princess Diana's philanthropic endeavors greatly endeared Diana to the hearts of the world & live on as her legacy. The Diana Princess of Wales Memorial Fund was established in her honor. She is remembered not only for the money her name could raise, but also for the loving acts she bestowed on so many. She was the "People's Princess." her life began in a fairytale fashion; yet, she rose to demonstrate to the world that one can overcome adversity & leave a meaningful legacy. She restored a sense of mission & humanity to the monarchy of England as well as the world.

PRINCESS DIANA BEANIE BABY BEAR HISTORY
THE TRUTH, THE WHOLE TRUTH & NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH
TY© PRINCESS BEANIE BABY BEARS®
* Ty Beanie Baby 'Princess' the bear was announced on October 1997 & issued in December 1997 as a charity release for the Princess Diana of Wales Memorial Fund. All of Ty Inc's profits from the bear were donated to the fund. The Princess Beanie Baby was retired on April 13, 1999.

PVC PELLETS VS PE PELLETS
* The pellet issue helps to define which came first. P.V.C. stands for Polyvinylchloride & P.E. stands for Polyethylene. Ty stopped using PVC pellets in favor of using PE pellets as these were considered to be more environmentally friendly. Beanies with PVC pellets tend to be more rare & therefore more valuable. Know the facts!

PVC WAS INVENTED FIRST ~ DUH!
* Please read all the PD Beanie Baby History information on this auction. The information is vital to the truth about the extreme rarity of the real #1 PVC's. There would never be PE Beanies of any kind if Ty wasn't forced by Green Peace to change over from PVC to PE!!! The only thing that matter's is what is on the Tush Tag, not some bogus CIA/FBI test to see what the Beanies are filled with. LOL!!!

BRIGHT GREEN STEM VS PALE GREEN STEM
* The bright green stems are on the first two editions. The pale green stems are on the later editions of the Princess Beanie Babies.

PhotobucketPhotobucket

SIX EDITIONS WERE RELEASED IN THIS ORDER
* The Edition PICs are a Historical Timeline Reference...

PhotobucketPhotobucket

* #1 First Edition Swing Tag & China PVC Tush Tag ~ Retired 1997
In December 1997 the PE pellets replaced the PVC pellets. The second edition PE Tush Tag was created. The PVC Tush Tag came first & the PE Tush Tag came second. The Beanie Vendors received both PVC & PE bears for sale at the same time in January 1998. Ty knew that the PVC Princess Beanie Bear was so rare that they only allowed one PVC Bear 1st Edition to be included with eleven PE Bear 2nd Editions for each Beanie Vendor to sell. That's why there are so many PE Bears for sale & only a handful of PVC Bears for investment.

PhotobucketPhotobucket

* #2 Second Edition Swing Tag & China PE Tush Tag ~ Retired 1998

PhotobucketPhotobucket

* #3 Third Edition Swing Tag & Indonesia PVC Tush Tag ~ Retired 1998

PhotobucketPhotobucket

* #4 Fourth Edition Swing Tag & Indonesia PE Tush Tag ~ Retired 1998
(Top of PE Tush Tag says Handmade In Indonesia)


PhotobucketPhotobucket

* #5 Fifth Edition Swing Tag & China PE Tush Tag ~ Retired 1999
The Swing Tag on the right side has a double space above Diana, Princess Of Wales Memorial Fund. This double space appears on all Fifth Editions. The Fifth Edition was the issue that started the mass production. These 5th Editions do not have the dreaded stamped numbers which denote assembly line or factory control numbers.

UPDATED PD BEANIE BABY INFORMATION
THE DREADED 6TH EDITION ~ STAMPED NUMBERS

* #6 Six Edition Same As The 5th Edition Swing Tag & China PE Tush Tag
Retired 1999 ~ With Common Stamped Factory Numbers

The 40 million mass produced 6th Edition Tush Tags contain an oval & number stamped in red or pink on the inside of the loop. There were several different numbers denoting different assembly lines or factory control numbers. BEWARE: Seems like several hundred of these 5th & 6th Editions ended up on eBay claiming to be the first edition.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION TO NOTE

PhotobucketPhotobucket

* All Princess Beanie Baby Swing Tags are the same front & back.

* All Princess Beanie Baby Tush Tags are 1997. The year on the tush tag is the copyright year for that specific design of the Tush Tag not the production.

Photobucket

*
Only the Princess Beanie Bear Buddy has the official Diana charity emblem or logo on the inside of the Swing Tag, all the Princess Beanie Baby Swing Tags do not.

* International Shipping Services:

We offer First Class International (4 pound Limit), Flat Rate Priority Mail International, Priority Mail International & Express Mail International. Customers can choose the service that they wish based on the desire for speed & security vs. affordability. Please note that by choosing First Class International or Flat Rate Priority Mail International as a customer you are releasing Thejackpot - Cool Collectibles of all liability in regard to damage & non-receipt. Priority Mail International, Express Mail International provide for tracking & insurance & are therefore the best choice for more valuable shipments.

* International Customs Delays:
We are not responsible for international customs delays. Each country establishes its own standards. Many factors can affect international transit times.
* International Duties & Taxes:
Please note that the customer is responsible for any duties & taxes imposed by your country at your country's border. We have no control over these charges & cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary from country to country. For more information we suggest that you contact your local customs office.
EBAY'S POLICY STATES: Buyers are not allowed to ask sellers to falsify customs declarations & is prohibited as part of eBay's policy against encouraging illegal activity.
* Refusal of International Orders:
Very Important ~ If you deny the delivery of a package due to customs fees, please understand that you will be responsible for the full cost of shipping to your door & then back to us. So please do not refuse a delivery as it will be extremely costly.

* Holidays:
Every country celebrates different holidays. If your shipment arrives on a holiday, couriers may not be able to deliver until your recipient's office is open.

* Weekends:
Transit times are calculated in business days, so you will need to account for weekend days, if applicable. Note that weekends may differ by country as well.
* Natural Disasters:
Due to recent world events & natural disasters, international shipping times could be subject to delays from carriers. E.g. earthquakes, hurricanes, volcanic ash etc...
* Combined Shipping:
We combine shipping on multiple auctions to help you save on postage. Please contact us for shipping costs.
* Handling Time ~ Lead Time Prior To Shipping:
TEN (10) WORKING DAYS ~ PayPal funds must clear first & then your item(s) will be properly packed & shipped to your destination. NOTE: 10 Days does not include carrier shipping times, please add proper shipment arrival times. Media is slower then Priority etc... Our shipping cycle is once a week. Therefore your position in the cue depends on when your payment is received.

PACKING METHODS:
We pack all items in proper shipping boxes & mailing envelopes. For example, we won't wrap an original boxed item in brown paper thus allowing the valuable original box to get damaged in shipment. We promise not to fold or roll your collectible just because it could fit into an unprotected envelope or mailing tube. We won't send your item unprotected. Having been on eBay since 1997, we have seen it all thousands of times. Disreputable sellers resort to used kitty litter boxes, pizza, bladder control, feminine hygiene, diaper & other beat up boxes to save money & guarantee the items will arrive damaged. It is very important to us that our buyers receive all items undamaged.

There are many sellers that cause the damage themselves either directly or indirectly. These sellers think they can shove something valuable like a $200 magazine in an envelope & mark "Do Not Bend or Fragile". You know who you are! A few sellers have stated to us that they cross their fingers & hope their items arrive OK. Can you imagine a shipper actually spending extra time reading what is on the box or envelope other than the address? Shippers throw & drop packages to move mail quickly!

So rest assured, we would rather overprotect because we know what can happen. We use thick cardboard to protect flat paper items from damage. If it is a larger item we use bubble wrap. Once an item is properly protected, we pack using custom sized mailers or envelopes for flat paper items & properly sized boxes with plenty of peanuts for larger items.

SMOKE FREE ENVIRONMENT:
All items have been stored in a nonsmoking, smoke free environment.

SALES TAX:
California residents are subject to 9.75% sales tax.

CONDITION:
Grading conditions are subjective. You must be your own judge when deciding the condition of items vintage or new. It is very important to ask questions concerning the item before bidding or buying.

RETURNS:
None. Sold As Is.
