THE COLLECTIBLE SECONDARY MARKET WORKS~
Each Lincoln County Garden Club figurine is produced in a pre-determined number... then the mold is destroyed. They're sold at the issue price of $27.50 per figurine until each is sold out...no more are available. This is when the secondary market comes into play.
SECONDARY MARKET...means individual collectors, speculators or liquidators may sell their figurine collections to buyers at whatever the "going price" is...or to put it another way, what ever the market bares...(using supply and demand to set their prices.This is the same principle that applies to selling antiques and collectibles)....
.. So although they were
originally purchased at $27.50 each;issue
FYI: CHECK THE SIGNATURES ON CRUNKLETON FIGURINES FOR AUTHENTICITY. MANY COME SIGNED AT THE FACTORY STATING NAMES OF ARTIST AND FIGURINE, MERELY FOR IDENTIFICATION PURPOSES.
However, Clubs 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 and 16 are made in the USA...and ARE actually signed by Marge Crunkleton.
