Four categories are new to the Kovels' top 20Royal Bayreuth, Dolls, McCoy and Lefton.
People use price guides for a number of reasons, usually to determine the value of an item that they own. If an item isn't listed in the top 20, it doesn't mean it is unpopular or that there isn't a demand for it. It only means that in January there was less interest in finding prices for that item.
