Yes Steve production mistakes, intentional or not, can really drive up prices.  Wife and I collect 100 year old pottery from a group of potteries that were based about 3 miles from were we live. A young boy or even the more elder man that worked there would make a couple dollars a day making a crock or jug that was sold for 10 to 12 cents each. If the stencil that was applied in cobalt blue was inadvertently applied upside down or backwards the piece still went out the shipping room door as a usable/salable piece of pottery. A hundred years later that piece that was not done properly will be double the going price for an normal piece.  That’s because buyers like me are crazy!!!!  It is now official, I’m crazy!  First old English sports cars now hardened pieces of clay!
Hope everyone is having a great day.

Perry, in my opinion, the really valuable Barbie Healeys are the ones
manufactured with the bumpers upside down like the one I bought 25 years ago
at the Charlotte Autofair.  This drives the Barbie Healey Concours people
crazy when they insist that the bumpers are incorrect.  However, the bumpers
were not simply installed upside down at the factory, they were made that
way as the BARBIE on the license plates with the upside down overriders

>From the experience of the stamps and coins that have manufacturing defects
and are worth thousands and millions more than the standard-issue stuff, I
expect to reap great monetary rewards from my little jewel when the time
comes to sell her at the B-J Scottsdale auction.

I don't fit in the new Healey and the wife isn't too crazy about the girl
hanging around in the family room but for $22 I brought them home anyway.
Even came in a near perfect original box! Have to see if the radio works.
