They are available in three Skin Color Shades. There is a Dark, a Light and a somewhat Asian looking Willie.
I own several of the Willie's and actually have 2 identical Light Skin Color nodders. When they're side by side in my showcase, or you pick them up and examine them, you'd never ever know that one is Dead on Mint, and the other has been repainted, but my black light knows this fact. For a long time, I couldn't decide which one of the two I most wanted to keep for myself? So I'll sell this guy and he's MINT and gorgeous and shiny and you will love him! I guarantee that this Willie Mays to have never been refurbished, nor refinished, nor repainted and is 100% original.
Thank you again for watching and please make the DENVER SUPPLY one of your favorite vendors so you can readily and frequently drop by. I try to list several items each and everyday so have a look and if there's something in particular that you're looking for, please ask me.
I have thousands of nodders to move in the next few years, I hope I live long enough to do so. One final thought, I guarantee and promise satisfaction with each and every item that w. I have 14 nodders from when I was a child.Back then they were only a buck or two and my Mother would allow me to pick one out every time we went to the Ephrata Children's Boy Store for school clothing. They had an entire wall of them.
How many times I've thought about those days. I would love to simply know now what all they had? I took painstaking care of these little guys even then. I even hid this fact from my friends for fear of them making fun of me for playing with dolls.I gently stuffed newspaper in their heads because even then, I was indeed smarter then the average bear, and he's actually quite intelligent, so they say. Today, I use Jumbo cotton balls instead of newspaper cause I can afford it now. I did however, carefully write the number 43 on the back of one of my several Phillie bobbin heads. He is still lovingly known today as the "Wes Covington" edition, and he's quite limited, I'll have you know. So each and everyone of these guys turned out negative on my black light test. They look beautiful, as advertised, but when subjected to your little black light test, BOOM, there it is. Without the aid of that black light, I couldn't tell which of my Black Faced Phillies had been restored. They are both beautiful, and shiney, and mint, and have vibrant colors.
But when the black light hits it, there are your spots of color that someone painted on. You may certainly fix them up, paint them up, cover up a nick, scratch, pin hole, whatever, to your own choosing and preference. Feel free to do whatever you like. But the problem now lies, if and when you should decide to sell them.
Because now you have an obligation to at least share this. I don't mind owning and displaying mint nodders in my personal collection that have been professionally restored, don't mind it one little bit. But there's a huge difference in the price. Yes the true MINT ones that have never been restored are very expensive, I don't deny that.
Some people don't understand this and give me a good bit of grief about those prices. They can easily bring double or triple book prices.Keep in mind please that all price guides are nearly 20 years old also. Most of the dealers aren't willing to pay as much as I do for the mint, unrefurbished old nodders, but I also have a huge selection of non mint ones and I'm working diligently to get them all listed, but it will take me years. Regardless, get yourself a black light please, you'll be an expert in no time and you'll be glad that you did. I would never ever be without mine again. They even sell blacklight flashlights. If you're a nodder collector, this is an absolute must for your own satisfaction as well as protection. It's simply too easy.
