PostSubject: Schleich elephant with an unusual tag   Sat Apr 13, 2013 1:12 am

I just today bought the old female Indian Elephant. The store had four left, and, as always I chose the one which was best, in terms of damages. After picking it up, I noticed that the leg ribbon had a yellow spot ($6.49) instead of a gray one ($7.99). I'm not sure why this has happened, when it was scanned it came up as the correct animal, so no one was switching tags. I was wondering if this is a misprint or mistake of some sort, and if it was one, would it be worth anything at auction? Thanks in advance. elephant

Congratulations with your find cheers

It sounds like they did a printing error on the colour, doesn`t it ? scratch

I have no idea about price ! Most often I ( most people? ) take the price tag off and throw it away Rolling Eyes

I don't know but I have seen few times different situation: animal which has cheaper spot on website had more expensive colour in the shop... Rolling Eyes I thought maybe someone exchange these price tag to buy other animal cheaper or so Shocked Rolling Eyes

But it could be that was just mistake in factory too :) scratch
Anyway congrats on Your find :)

Thanks. I had an explanation myself, that it was once a lower price, and was since raised, but I think it being an error was more likely. this would be my second misprint, after a Safari suchomimus with a T. rex label.
To answer Ana, I have also seen such a thing where the store raised the price, the store's sticker was put over the original colour to put it in a higher price group.
