Are the ornaments .... new, never used, never removed from the box? Current year and recent year (last 3-5 years) ornaments are new, direct from Hallmark stores and warehouses.
Older ornaments - Our inventory comes from a wide variety of sources including stores, secondary market dealers, private collectors, auctions, etc. We do not track where any particular item was purchased from and are unable to indicate whether an item was previously owned or never removed from the box. We do GUARANTEE that all ornaments and collectibles should be in undamaged/mint condition, only the box condition may vary, as indicated by the item name/description. An item sold as Mint in Box, should appear new, regardless of where it was purchased.
I don't see a box condition listed? Is the ornament and box mint? Due to space constraints Item Names ONLY include box condition if it is less than MINT. When you click on the item name or thumbnail to view the item description page you will see the condition 'spelled out' As always, the ornament/collectible should ALWAYS be mint - the condition refers to the box only.
What does - SDB, DB, NB mean? These are the standard Hallmark collectible abbreviations used to indicate box condition. Ornaments/collectibles are always mint, unless specified otherwise. Our inventory is graded as follows:
SDB - Slightly Damaged Box - slight damaged may be found upon close examination DB - Damaged Box - box is noticeably damaged NB - No Box - missing the original box
What is a Repaint or Colorway ornament? A repaint or colorway ornament is a specially produced ornament offered as a Special or Limited Edition. Hallmark takes an ornament mold from the regular Keepsake line and paints it differently from the original ornament. The ornament is produced in much smaller quantities than the regular line ornament. The specially painted Repaint or Colorway ornament may be offered for purchase at a special event or it may be available as a prize. Values for these ornaments vary depending upon the production size, how difficult it was to get the ornament and the subject of the ornament. ( View Repaints )
What is a Prototype? A prototype is a pre-production ornament. Prototypes may be original artist sculpts or pre-manufacturing test pieces. Prototypes are some of the most sought after and most illusive Hallmark collectibles as they are literally one of a kinds. ( View Rare & Prototypes )
Not all of my ornaments have Collector Cards? Hallmark Collector cards were included with Hallmark Keepsake ornaments from 2002 - 2005. Additionally, some 2002-2005 ornaments were issued without Collector Cards - Special Edition ornaments and ornaments that were issued in boxes with clear plastic fronts (like the Club Barbies) were not issued with Collector Cards.
