A Bit Inside Information About the Rareness of the Blank Button 

Some Websites Say Its "Second" 
And That It Doesn't Meet Steiff Quality Standards, 
But There Is Nothing About That Ever Said by Steiff Self. 

We Went to Steiff in Giengen and Asked Steiff 
Why They Used a Blank Button 

From Steiff : 

The Riveted Brass Button (Blank) Without the Word 
"Steiff" Legend Was Used to Identify "Second Class" Articles From 1984.

They Used the "Blank Button" When the Bear Itself Was a Bit Different 
Then the Standard Model They Produced and It Would Not Fit in Their Line. 

This Makes the Bear One of a Kind and Superb Rare 
Steiff Would Never Sell Something That Would Not Meet 
" Their Safety Standards" 

This Does Not Mean the Item Is No Good as We Check 
All What We List Online and We Have Bought Them 
At Steiff in Giengen Germany Ourselves. 

Why Did Steiff Decided to Make Him Second Class? 

His Measurements Are a Bit Different and Also Is   
His Overall Expression Then the Standard Model. 

In Fact This Bear Was Even More Expensive for Us to Purchase 
Then the Standard Model Which Was Available There Too. 
This One Was Show Cased in a Glass Case Behind the Counter. 

That's What Made Him Rare and Special Enough for Us to Buy. 
We Only Bring Top Quality to Our Shoppe and Nothing Less.
