Price Check on G1 Seaponies?

(1/2) > >>

Nonnavlis:
Hi pony friends! I've been out of the collecting loop for awhile and I was wondering if some of you wouldn't mind to help me price check some sea ponies? I'd like to trade some with a friend and I want to make sure I don't stiff her! But I'm having an awfully hard time finding any recent prices for them ^^;;

I have:
Whitecap - Excellent shape. No flaws at all. She's ivory rather than pure white, but I think they all are?
High Tide - Perfect paint, no frizz or damage, but her hair is faded and she has an orange stain on her chin (Looks like highlighter, but it's probably from being rested against  pink plastic at some point).
Backstroke and her float - Factory eye-painting is a little blurry and she has some discolouration from her neck glue but otherwise she's good. I'd also be interested to know the value of just her float? It is pretty-near mint with just one tiny scuff to the orange paint on the crest.
Pearly Surf Rider and her float - Mint asides from her faded hair. Her float has a few small scuffs.
Splasher and her float - She has no flaws, but she might be slightly yellowed? I can't quite tell.  Her float has a couple small scuffs.

Any guidance anyone could offer would be great! Thanks so much!

Leave a Whisper:
Baby Backstroke with float-$25-$30
Baby Surf Rider with float-$25-$30

That's what I usually see those baby ponies go for with their floats.

I don't know if any floats are specifically more expensive/HTF, but I usually see floats without sea ponies go around the $10-$20 mark.

Whitecap almost always comes up with brown splotchy age marks - if yours is stain free, could go very high indeed.  2nd set adults are some of the most expensive sea ponies.  It'll depend on how far off white she is.  High Tide it'll depend if the mark can be faded out or not, and how much pink, if any, is left in her hair.

Nonnavlis:
Thanks for the help you two!

As far as I can tell Whitecap really does have no marks, but she's definitely ivory and not white. I'd say she's about two shades darker than white? Undeniably ivory, but not quite cream. Unfortunately it's much too dark here to take a good picture of her just now! She might go paler if she had her insides scrubbed out because I can see signs that she's a bit rusty inside but her head is still glued and I knew she was the most valuable one so I've never been keen to mess with her.

I've never faded a mark off a pony (they don't bother me) so I wouldn't know what to do with High Tide, but her hair is definitely more white than pink. There's only just enough colour left in it to tell it was pink at some point.

I remembered them both as being worth around $50 (American) dollars without their shells if the condition isn't too bad. Would that be about right?

Baby Sugarberry:
50$ seems low?  That said I personally haven't bought any of these lovelies as I already have them all.

Have a poke at ebay's completed listings, a Whitecap recently sold for 80$ off-white and with some minor paint rubs, didn't look for High Tide.  You wouldn't have to fade the (potential) highlighter mark yourself, but it would matter if it looks like something that could be easily taken care of or not.
