Julie McClure About Antiques
“This column could be titled “Hummel figurines and all the different values we can find for the same thing.” I cannot think of any collectible that shows so clearly the wide variety of values for the same items. Depending on whether you are looking at a price guide or on eBay, the values will vary widely.
Hummel prices are also affected by the marks on the bottom of the figure. The older marks bring more money. Still, there is a large discrepancy between the value listed in price guides and actual selling prices.”
