This particular type was manufactured in 1963 to 1965 in Japan and is part of the Green Base Series. He is a beautiful Bird and will display very well. I have listed him as mint and except for the black face Oriole, he's probably the nicest condition bird that I've ever had.There are no cracks or flaws whatsoever. He is very unique as he has the embossed logo on his jersey, and not the decal, as the other Green bases that I've ever seen, have. The white base Oriole wears this type of shirt. Also I noticed that all the Orioles have the cut off sleeves except for this guy. He is wearing regular short sleeves? Can't say that I understand. Perhaps he's one made in transition from one bird to the next, don't know? But he's absolutely dazzling. So I'm not sure what's up here, but I'm listing him anyway. I guarantee him to have never been repaired, restored, repainted, refurbished and 100% original. The DENVER SUPPLY Co was founded in 1915 and we're located in Denver Pennsylvania.

One final thought, I guarantee and promise satisfaction with each and every item that w. This is fun, but very expensive hobby and we need to take some precautions. 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 picked out a few Phillies, over the years, a Hershey Bear, San Francisco Giant, an Eagles, an Eagles Cheerleader Set, a Baltimore Oriole, two different Mini Phillies, a New York Yankee, a couple of generic Toes Up Football College teams, and a Houston Oiler simply because I loved their style and design. 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. I did however, carefully write the number 43 on the back of one of my several Phillie bobbin heads.
He is still 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. Now they've been restored and this is going to help sell it for some people but it will also lower your price.It's no longer original. 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 it's far easier for me to sell the mint ones that have NEVER been restored. Yes they're very expensive, I don't deny that.
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.
