These dolls are all mass-produced. It doesn't matter if it says "Limited Edition", has a certificate of authenticity, or was never taken out of the box.
I have a Betty Jane Carter doll, named Becky. It is musical and plays - A Pretty Girl is Like a Melody. It is a limited edition 72/600 - #912720. She is in the original box (never used).
Someone is selling this doll on eBay for $59.49. http://m.ebay.c … 7677?_mwBanner=1
It appears that the Betty Jane Carter Dolls have a value amongst collector and are highly collectible. It also appears that the rare dolls seem to have a higher value. Others on the site have inquired about the price of a Betty Jane Carter Doll. You can read the responses here.
Unfortunately, the dolls do not bring a high resale value. It appears that most of the Betty Jane Carter dolls sell between $10 to $50 dollars. If you have a couple they are selling for $125 dollars. The older your doll the higher the value. A doll make in 1995 only sell for 15 dollars.
Most of Betty Jane Carter dolls are Goebel dolls and are mass produced to sell in stores like Target, Walmart, etc and a few specialty shops like Hallmark. Most of the dolls are purchased for gifts and not as collectibles and original prices range from $50 - $125 but resale value will range from $10 - $40 (usually the lower end) with an occasional one selling for more but that is rare. This company made animal character dolls that are more popular than their regular dolls.
There are presently 255 (8/2017) Betty Jane Carter dolls listed on eBay and although asking prices vary from low to high, the only thing that counts is what a doll is actually sold for. Here are links showing dolls on eBay auction now and the second link is to dolls that actually sold in the past few months. Check out the difference in asking and sold prices.
A lower number of dolls produced (your doll was 600) can mean many things; doll was popular and more were produced, doll was not popular (did not sell well) and less were produced, or a smaller number were produced as something special. Your doll does not appear to be in the "special" category.
Hi Cybergrannie.......Thanks for the great info. I will try to update my question with a photo. (just learning) I think you nailed it..
Where can I Sell my porcelain dolls, such as Betty Jane Carter, Semoreman, Angel Pooping ?
What about dolls made 1987
I have a doll from 1987 as well. Cecilia, musical and plays Younger than Springtime.

I don't see your exact doll on eBay but another musical one sold for $50. Jane Carter dolls in general seem to sell for $10 to $50.
