Set of Red Skelton Plates

markn902August 30, 2010

I recently acquired a set of 8 red skelton plates made between 79-83 and my question is this. I went to a website that gave me a value of the plate ( i think it was platefinders) but doesn't the number on the back have something to do with it? I thought lower number meant more valuable. That particular website didn't have any sort of question about that. Am I wrong? I am a newbie at this sort of thing. anyway any help would be appreciated thank you

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

It all depends on how many there were in the original; edition...if there were 2000 plates made the value of number 3 would not be more or less than that of number 1998.
And collectors plates have very little resale value, so the point is moot.
