Radko Turtle Bird - Magic 25

One of the harder to find Magic 25's. Numbered 68/440.
The story of the Magic 25:
Here are excerpts from an article found in the newsletter "Glitter" November/December 1996 issue:

"1995 was a difficult year for the Radko line due to problems with the factories in Poland. Nearly 100 pieces of the 1995 collection were retired that same year causing collectors to jam retailers' phone lines in an effort to locate these now limited production pieces. Once the factory problems were resolved, Christopher decided to give everyone one last shot at 25 of the retired pieces with an extra bonus. These 25 pieces were hand numbered - and notice I said the PIECES were numbered - not the tag!"

(and further down in the article)
"While some pieces such as Gunther and The Andrew Jacksons have already sold for up to five times their issue price, may are still available on the secondary market at what I consider very reasonable prices."

The list of Magic 25's include: High Flying, Caribbean Constable, Claudette, Frog Lady, Garden Girls, Farmer Boy, Personal Delivery, Turtle Bird, Officer Joe, Dutch Dolls, Sister Act, Grandpa Jones, Little Toy Maker, Mugsy, Penelope, Bringing Home The Bacon, Hubbard's The Name, The Andrew Jacksons, Little Red, Here Boy, Off To Market, Clown Rattle, Gunther, Imperial Helmet, Jumbo Walnut."
