From the Book, 25 Years of Wurstfest Mugs: "For a long time after it sold out, the 1983 Wurstfest Mug could be found relatively easily in the $40 to $50 range. However, even the gray mug, which usually sells for a little less, has now hit three figures, with recent sales at $98 and $104. The lidded steins bring substantially more and seldom show up for sale. The artwork on the 1983 mug berars the GB signature of Georgia Brooks, a teacher known to many of our customers for her knowledge and helpfulness. Original prices were $9.52 for the mug and about $40 for the stein." --Ken Armke
