In July 2004, Ty surprised collectors with a “GOLD Ty” tush tag, but it was short lived. The copyright dates were 2004, and the tush tag generation is 13th Generation, with a 12th Generation hang tag.
These Beanies have a GOLD Ty tush tag.
Note: Swinger also came with a WHITE Ty tush tag dated 2004 and 12G hang tag, and a WHITE Ty tush tag dated 2007 with 15G Evan Almighty hang tag.
Holy Father also had gold on its tags, but it was different than the above selection.
