The CVG Error Guide
While the Collectors Value Guide continuously
serves as a wonderful resource for Boyds Collectors, there seems to be a few errors with
each printing. (hey, nobody's perfect!) This web page can be used as a friendly exchange
of information regarding CVG errors.

Anniversary Ltd. Edition (Justina, Matt, B. Anne; Zuzu wuzzie and a three-wheeled wagon).

1.) Edmund Fall 97 and Matthew Fall 97 pictures are reversed
2.) The picture of Elloit B. Bean is not him ( Looks like Albert)

P68 Father Christmas is really Niklas who is also shown on page 176

He is being sold by QVC but is not an exclusive.

On pg. 86 Ophelia W. Witebred is the wrong bear. It should be the ophelia in the red
There is no mention of Valerie Dubeary a GCC exclusive. Her tag says 1985-98.
1999 RESIN GUIDE
From: Elizabeth EHarm60928@aol.com
I have Wendy Willowhare in a 1st edition and she was originally introduced as
Wendy Willowhare & Pip. However, I noticed there in no Pip to be found. I noticed the
later editions just say Wendy Willowhare.
They only have one Catlin with Emma& Edmund listed. The Kirlin's exclusive is not in
the 99 book.

Cerebella (wee folk) was a PE
Fergus McDivot (wee folk) was a PE in Spring of '98
Grandma FaerieHugs(wee folk) was a PE

1998 Guidebook Errors
So far Harry Croft said that the Polaris retirement is a error. He hasn't heard any news
of this. Have a great day! :o) Thanks Donna!
Many Collectors have noted the obvious omission of the very rare
and valuable ($835) Canadian Elf Bear from the "Bearstone Top Ten" list!
Several folks have commented on the lack of secondary prices for
the pins - we know some of those old retired gems have gone for much more than the retail
price of $4!
Page 49 shows Clarion Bear instead of Bailey w/Suitcase SFMB.
Linda at Collectibles writes:
These are mistakes I have found:
- Constance & Felicity is listed as having editions, but it is a limited
edition & just has piece number & no editions.
- On #28203-06, Etheral Angel, the picture is not her; it is Illumina Angel.
- On #28206-06, Astrid Angel, LE, they have also listed edition numbers, & the
item just has piece number & no editions.
- #2822, Angel of Peace, the picture is that of one we are familiar with; however,
the very FIRST angel of peace had a different face. After a few months, it was
resculptured & issued, but never a mention of that in other publications..
I e-mailed CVG last week with the errors I found.
- One was Sandra S. Claus Dollstone, listed at $23.00, when in fact it was $53.00.
I know cause I bought it.
Also, Sabbath Nights Dollstone, listed at $38.00, when it was $28.00.
(And I think one of these they list the value at $17.00. I don't have the CVG
with me, so I can't check it.)
Thank you to Colette for sharing this!
My contributions: On page 76, the value of "Jessica and Timmy, Animal
Hospital" is listed as $16 for all editions, when the original price is $40 (and the
piece hasn't even hit the stores yet...).
In the plush, there is also the great Higgins/Higgy and Farnsworth Jr/Sr picture
identification errors, a mistake from last year that was not corrected.
Thanks for your contribution, Cindy!
- p 78 Price of Sandra S. Claus is incorrect (believe it was around $56)
- p.49 SFMBBailey with Suitcase: Picture shown is Clarion bear
Omissions (possible because this info was not available before printing
- p.79 Teresa and John does not list a Premier price
- p.77 Mary and Paul not listed as Ltd. Ed. GM's choice (as piece is marked).
- QVC exclusives Gwain & Guinevere not listed
Elaine, thanks for sending these in!
Lara LE was not in there. Mrs. Potter and Amadeaus wasn't either. Jamie and
Thomasina was a premier.
Thanks Michelle for sharing!!
QVC Uncle Gus and the Gift $88.50 not listed in CVG
Page 47 #7 shows a picture of Emma the Witchy Bear resin, should be the
votive with the large pumpkin.
Thanks to Marian - Mmpunkios@aol.com
In the Plush section, the following bears are not documented as having retired
in '97, although the'97 CVG states that they were to retire in '97:
- Camilla #5732 p.133
- Farnsworth Jr. #5870-08 p.135
- Lenora Flatstein #5685-08 p.137
- Aubergine #9107 p.132
- Carlin Wabbit #9115 p.133
- Hedy #9186-01 p.136
- Stewart Rarebit #9116 p.141
- Demi #9112 p.134
Now, it gets even more confusing, 'cause in the '98 CVG (pp.98-99), it states that
Camilla, Farnsworth Jr., Lenora Flatstein, Aubergine, Carlin Wabbit, Demi, Hedy,Stewart
Rarebit are all retiring in '98, yet they were listed in the '97 CVG (p.79) as retiring in
'97....So which is it??
Also, Edmund Fall of '96 is not listed on either p.79 of the '97 CVG or pp.98-99 of the
'98 CVG as retired, yet on p.102 of the'98 CVG, he is marked as retired in '97.
What is the verdict on those retirements?
Dena - DCAT10@aol.com
Thanks Dena! Does anyone know the status of these plush?
In some of the New CVG "98" books pages 129 - 145 are missing.
Have a great day! Donna :o)
Edmund Fall 1994 shows a red hat, which is an error. His hat actually matches
his sweater. Thanks Brenda!
Two missing items from the latest version of the CVG is Indigo Jones as well as
Kent with Putnam.
On Page 102, it is listed that the variation of Spring 94 Edmund wears a black and white
shirt. I think the variation is in the color of his pants. The "confused Edmund"
wears navy pants with a black and white shirt whereas the "normal Edmund" wears
black pants with a black and white shirt.
On Page 106, there is only one Callaghan listed. I know that there are two versions of him
because I purchased both versions !
Thanks to Marie
The plush bear Disraeli is spelled incorrectly as Disreali.
The Folkstone figure Jean Claude and Jacques - Jacques is spelled incorrectly
Thanks Caren for pointing out the typos.
