Flea market finds
« on: August 26, 2017, 08:53:34 PM »
Went to a flea market in Crossville TN today, and found these ponies

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Had to take Bowties head off, it was pretty loose already. I heard liquid sloshing around in there and wanted to give her a quick rinse and dry before cleaning up later.

Strawberry Scoops was a neat find, probably not gonna mess with her hair. Quite frizzy and looks like a previous owner braided her tail. Looks like some of the original curls are still around.

Regarding Seashell, kinda hard to see the pictures of all variants on Strawberry Reef and mylittlewiki. She's got a blaze/diamond on her head, can't tell if that's on the US variant or some foreign version. Can anyone confirm this?

Unfortunately Seashell's got some ugly brown spots around her neck ring. Hoping they're not too serious and will come off.

Sugarberry's neat, I'm always looking for something different to add to my collection.

Is it worth removing a pony's head to replace the metal tail washers/clamps? There's no visible signs of rust on the outside of a pony. Just curious about eventual resale value, though these are mainly for my personal collection. If I do sell these ponies several years later, I'll probably try to get what I paid for them.

Congratulations on your new ponies!

Seashell (as well as Bubbles) have blazes on their heads in most countries, I believe. I think there's a few Nirvanas where they do not. Your Seashell is probably the US one.

As for the metal washers and such, if there's no rust you can probably just keep them in. If any problems arise then replace them with non-metal washers or zip ties. I don't know if that affects value at all.

White blaze on Bubbles and Seashell is normal for the North American release.
