Is my Miniature a Disney piece?

Hagen-Renaker produced figurines under licensure for Disney from 1955 to 1960, and briefly in 1982. When the contract expired, Hagen-Renaker reissued many of those molds in their regular Miniatures line, and collectors often refer to these as “Non-Disneys.”

The distinctions between Disneys and reissues can be confusing to beginners. Non-Disneys are always painted differently, and usually much more simply, than Disney pieces. I have included photos of genuine Disney pieces along with the Non-Disney Miniatures for comparison.

Disney pieces tend to be worth more than Non-Disneys, but this is not always the case. A few of the Non-Disneys are exceptionally rare and are noted as such in this Field Guide.
