To whom it may concern,
Whether young or young-at-heart, there is a Steiff Teddy for everyone. Steiff Teddy bear was invented nearly 120 years ago. Generations later, the famous Teddies with the legendary "Button in Ear" are as treasured as ever. For all of the Steiff Teddy Bear collectors out there, we all have our own reason to love the Bears and please keep doing that.
Hello everyone, my name is Jerry Dang and I am from Vietnam. Today, I am writing this letter to ask for value evaluation of my Chocolate Teddy bear by Steiff Original Teddybar – Collectors’ Ed.Set 1983 – Made in Western Germany (50@ wool and 50% cotton).
This beautiful 38 year old Steiff chocolate brown youngster Teddy Bears is pre-owned, I had him from a friend who loves collecting classic and vintage collectable things. It has been well cared and displayed by a true lover of Steiff. He belongs to a set of 4 inlding Dad, mom, little baby and himself.

Each bear is beautiful chocolate brown mohair with brown leatherette paw pads.
