    Hey all, long time no see. *wave* I just acquired this set in brand new condition with all 10 pins, in box/book, but am having a hard time finding a value for it. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen a couple of the individual pins go for a pretty penny by themselves, but I’ve heard wildly varying opinions on value of the set itself. Everything from $200-1,000. I’m going to be selling it, but I’d like to get a better idea of value first. Any ideas? I haven’t found it or any of the pins(besides Scuttle) on EBay.

    Thanks in advance!

    Just for reference for those who are wondering what the set is (this is the box).

    Pins have taken a dive lately with many newer pin traders wanting the newest pins that have come out.

    The Ariel/Eric boat pin recently sold for $70 on eBay. The Ariel/Flounder sold for $20. This is on eBay US.

    On eBay UK, the following pins went unsold:
    Ariel/Eric wedding pin: £ 39.99,
    Triton for £ 22.99
    Scuttle for £ 27.99
    Ariel dancing for £ 32.99

    I don't think you can get $1000 for it. People would spend that money on a LE100 Art Nouveau or Carousel pin or Gomes, but not a set of 10 pins like this. You might be able to get $500 for it - maybe - if you are patient and willing to wait. If you want a quick sale, pricing at $200 may garner it. I am of the motto to start a bit high and leave room for negotiation.

    Not being WDI I would value the set @100.00-$150.00 tops hope this helps.

    You'll make more if you break up the set-I absolutely think it's worth more than $100-$150, that's only $10-$15 a pin. You can probably get between $70-$90 for Ariel and Eric in a boat alone, if you put the rest up on eBay at a starting bid of $19.99, you'll probably sell most of them and will make at LEAST $250. But you won't get a good price if you keep them together, IMO.

    Why not base the price on what you have invested and what you think is fair, as a posed to just trying to get the most money out of it. Just a idea and probably not a popular one around here with the reselling and what not.
