Style #: 6017
Original Prototypes from Ruth Fraser and Nola Hart.
The final prototype bears a version 3 tush tag, and stitched burgundy bow, it does appear to be unique from the final production piece as the muzzle is not shaved and the tail ends with an open seam. It is compared to an example with the same tush tag that did not come with bow.
Squeaky was also issued without a burgundy bow and clear whiskers, version 4 tush tag and Korea hang tag. Many times it is hard to say if an attic without a bow has any significance since the bow can easily be removed. However, the bow on this run of tush tag was stitched thus making it difficult for the bow to become lost so easily. I have seen many examples of this now so I will account for this version here.
