A first generation Brownie Beanie Baby sold on Feb. 2, 2012 on EBay for $364.69. While the Beanie was described as being in excellent condition, the 1st generation heart tag had a UK Sticker and had some signs of wear. The Beanie had not been authenticated.
It is important to remind collectors that Brownie was only produced with a first generation heart tag, which is single fold and does not open like a book. Brownie is one of the most highly counterfeited Beanie Babies out there. We frequently see auctions on EBay for Brownie Beanie Babies with a second generation heart tag (opens like a book) which would indicated that the Beanie is not authentic.
