Bib Fortuna is the only part of my Lili Ledy collection which I urgently need to upgrade. I’m sorry for showing not so good conditioned examples, but I’m working on it.
First up is a coat that can be called “brownish”. So far it is the only cape I have seen in this colour. It could be dyed or washed wrong at some point, so I’m not sure if this is the real deal. I purchased this coat loose and you might have already noticed that the figure I put that coat on is not Lili Ledy.
Next up are two greyish versions of the coat. The right one I would call more greenish. Both colours are pretty common in my opinion. The colour of the lining and of the threads also differs a bit.
The one on the far right is the so called “burgundy” coat. Its condition is really not very good but therefore it’s one hundred percent original. The burgundy capes are the earliest version from the LL Bib Fortuna. It is said that Kenner intervened at one point so that the colour was changed. It can also be noted that the material is different compared to the later versions. The burgundy coat is the only one with a “fluffy” texture on the outside. This change could have happened because of the “fluff” tending to get lost. The burgundy coats are not very immune to wear as can be seen perfectly on the shown example.
The figures themselves are known with two slightly different coos and different facial details, which follow no certain order.
