Was just curious about the Anchor bay series AB101- seems each one was made both with People and without.. the one's without people only had a few hundred made.The "S" series with the people are much more common. I am curious if there was any "collectible" value to ones without people.

thanks for any input

There were people and glass cases for AB101S through AB110. These were all classified as Limited Editions of 4,000 except for AB110 that had 2,500 made. AB101 thru AB106 were Open Editions and were made without people, but, with glass cases. AB101 continued production with no exact figure on how many were produced while the quantities produced for AB102 through AB106 were recorded. The lower quantity of production on these pieces always make them more valuable but only to the collector that wants them. AB107 through AB109 never had an Open Edition produced but the "S" was removed starting with AB107. AB110 had the "S" removed and had 2,500 Limited Edition pieces produced as AB110 and then was reintroduced as AB113 Limited Edition without people and a glass case. The people and glass cases were dropped from all production pieces starting with AB111 through the final AB124 Anchor Bay and also the HL672 Lightship Relief which was a special piece made for the 2004 California Regional Event.

To answer your question in only a few words, the pieces are worth only what the market and the collector dictates.

Wow, thanks for this answer Rich. I never knew about the people. I only have 2 Anchor Bays, Huron and Chesapeake and they both have them. They are so tiny that all these years I just never noticed them. Amazing the detail in the AB's and some of the other pieces. Just what set HL apart from the competition. (Or of course I could have known about the people but just forgotten!)
