Hello friends I need your help.

I bought this safari grey whale last week.
It was cheap, and in a box along with the Invicta Blue Whale, the Monterey Bay Killer Whale and 2 Dino Riders Dinosaurs.
I saw the painting of the gray whale and first I thought it was a repaint, or something like that.
But then I looked around the internet and I found a picture of this safari Grey Whale, which is very similar to my one.

Now I need your help, does anybody know if the paint job of my Whale is original or a repaint.

I find the "normal" painting that that wie know on the safari gray whale so much more beautiful.
But I would like to find out, what's up with this Grey Whale and his paint job.
Thank you very much for your help.

Thank you for your help Susanne,
but do you think the paint job on this whale is an original safari painting?

Hmmm, hard to tell, but some of the white paint stands out seen close up, doesn't it ? scratch

I totally agree with you. My first thought was that it must be a repaint.
But it is already mysterious, to find a similar painted whale in the interent.

The older Monterey Bay Aquarium models usually do have unusual paint jobs they are just not as common and easy to find. I had a whale just like this one and several others NWT that I sold a couple years ago and that was exactly how I had purchased them originally. Tough to believe as it seems, this whale you have is not repainted but a factory paint original. 

Just look at all the drastic paint variations Safari LTD jas had through the years with their standard tigers and VW wolves. Very Happy It's a very common practice with this company in general.
