This super rare prototype is referred to in the Beanie world as Dollar Teddy. It is authenticated by Peggy Gallagher. The
attached Advent Enterprise Corp. tag is dated June 29, 2003, Seoul, Korea.
Dollar Teddy was never transitioned into mass production. It might possibly have
been a prototype for one of Ty's special Billionaire Bears because of the way it
is decorated with dollar bills.
