|Limited Edition:||Yes, but edition size unknown|
|Original Price:||$50.00 - $75.00|
|2 1/4 by 1 1/2 inch heavy pewter/goldtoned pin of Aladdin's Genie coming out of his lamp. Genie was available for a very brief period of time at the Parks,Galleries and Stores shortly after the success of the original theatrical release of the film.This Special (hard metal/spring hinged,black velvet interior and exterior covered boxed)treasure has no less than six different enamel colored sections (Light Blue, White, Black, Red, Pink, & Goldenrod) and is encrusted with red crystals on the sash around his waist and blue crystals for the smoke of his lower body coming out of his lamp.Once again,as with most of these kinds of pieces,the center section of the pin bows out from the wearer's garment which visually increases the size of the pin.|
This pin was also one of the earlier fore-runners of the crystal encrusted pins that were released afterwards. Though not marked as a limited edition,the price alone and the fact that not all locations received more than a rare couple of these little gems insured that few of these guys were available then and are still floating around today.(Sorry about the pun there!;-)
For some reason,prices varied from location to location,ranging from $50.00 to $75.00 apiece for this exclusive!
