I have a few Steiff bears I bought in Berlin and they are very cool indeed. But none sport a Roundel :(

Jon, I can highly recommend you to read Steiff's history. Early examples are very hard to come by and collectors are paying extraorbitant amounts to own one.

I have got the BMW Steiff bear. IIRC, it's not that expensive.

Okay, some family research has revealed that my mom collected Steiff bears. Apparently Andy and I own hundreds of them. We have not gone through them yet, they're still in storage.

Hmmm, anytime I see the word 'collectable' I translate that to:
-exorbinately priced item with minimal actual use other than a name brand, limited socially recognized trademark, wonderful dust collector, and are most likely worthless in the long run other than personal value.

But hey, maybe someone has $250 to spend on a $5 teddy bear.

The original retail price was 125

And it's numbered as well. Although, die-hard Steiff collectors will admit that this bear is NOT that rare. Hand-made ones still top the list of collectables.

I was at my dealership yesterday and they had this bear out on display in the parts dept.
