“What is my Peace Bear worth, it has multiple errors?” is a common question asked in our Facebook groups.
This is a simple answer: Error tags are just internet rumors. To some that is hard to believe, but we explain more about them in the following 3 blog posts. Please read them.

“What affects the value of my Peace Bear?” would be a better question to ask.
Check to see if your Peace Bear has a red factory stamp inside the looped tush tag.If it has the number 108 or 113 it is usually worth $75+ to the right buyer. Not all Peace Bears have a number. 107 can be worth $25+. Solid color “pajama” Peace Bears can be worth a bit. Solid blue seems to be the most common of the solids. Solids vary widely in value with Yellow seeming to be the most desirable at this time.
Neon Indonesia Peace Bears with primarily bright yellow are starting to go high again. We have verified sales from various sellers with prices from $300 – $1050. These bears have absolutely no drab coloring and are about as close to solid yellow as we’ve seen.
102 TY INC Neon’s can possibly bring $25+ (upwards of $200 for exceptional) Pastel Peace bears are appealing to many and true Pastels can bring $15+ to the right buyer. These prices are the exception and not the rule.
Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder with Peace bears. The vast majority are worth less than $5. The small niche market is shrinking. Some buyers are willing to pay for what collectors call “exceptional” colored Peace Bears. We hope this continues and is not a fluke.
