Counterfeit versions of Billionaire bear exist. Check for the following common indicators before purchasing this Beanie Baby:
1. The most common indicator of a counterfeit Billionaire bear (the first version) is the color of the material. The authentic Billionaire bear has a speckled brown fabric. The counterfeit has a solid brown, cocoa-shade fabric.
2. The dollar sign embroidered on the counterfeit's chest is a light green sage color. The authentic versioin has a darker "$" sign.
3. An authentic Billionaire bear has the 6th generation tush tag with a red heart. Any Billionaire bear (the first version) Beanie Baby with a hologram tush tag is counterfeit.
