WHAT IS THE TEAL STAMP ON CERTAIN WDCC SCULPTURES?
For a short time in 1994 the Walt Disney Classics experimented with a new logo on the bottom of their sculptures. This logo was a solid teal colored box with gold lettering. In production, it was discovered that
the gold was bleeding into the teal background so Disney decided to change the logo to a white background
with gold lettering. This is the logo we have today on the bottom of each sculpture. Although the 1994 sculptures are the same, those sculptures with this rare teal logo are considered the first versions and are the most sought after by collectors.
WHAT IS THE BACKSTAMP ON THE BOTTOM OF THE WDCC SCULPTURES?
The bottom of a WDCC sculpture may contain a production mark referring to the year it was produced (see definition under production mark) and it may contain a graphical or text backstamp which typically signifies a special event in which the sculpture was released or celebrates a film anniversary to which the sculpture is associated. Backstamped pieces are usually in a limited number and worth more than their non-backstamped counterparts.
WHAT IS THE PRODUCTION MARK ON THE BOTTOM OF THE WDCC SCULPTURES?
The production mark indicates the year of production. This can be important to a collector because when the WDCC changes the marking they will also very often make slight changes to the sculpture's mold. These are usually very small changes that cannot be noticed unless pointed out. For instance, it could be as little as a tilt in the head or an extra detail on a finger. However when/if these changes are made you then have 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc versions. The following indicates the WDCC's production mark schedule.

WHAT IS A DEALER DISPLAY?
A Dealer Display Sculpture is identical to the limited piece, but instead of a number on the bottom, there is a "DD". These versions were distributed to authorized WDCC dealers for the purpose of taking orders. There are far less dealer displays produced compared to the production of the limited piece, therefore pricing will
