Swarovski offered the SCS membership in many countries when the Dolphins were revealed as the 1990 SCS Annual Edition. The multi-lingual Swarovski certificate for the Swarovski Dolphins was necessary to avoid the need for language-specific certificates like the Swarovski Lovebirds certificate.
The authentic Swarovski Dolphins Certificate is an accordion style document with the certificate verbage in seven different languages: English, Spanish, French, Italian, German, Dutch, and Flemish.
The Swarovski âassigned reference number is located on the back side of the certificate in a very small font.Â The Swarovski Dolphins certificate is DO4MM90XX. Â The Dolphins âLead Meâ Certificate can also be found using another reference # DO1X901C, which was originally used in the Warnerâs Blue Ribbon Books on Swarovski catalog.
The Swarovski Dolphins COA was originally in a square white envelope when it was packaged with the crystal figurine. This original envelope is tissue-lined, and has the familiar Swarovski Swan logo on it and below that the letters SCS on the front side.
Regarding availability and replacement value, the SCS Swarovski Dolphins Certificate is not readily available. At Crystal Exchange America, the last ones sold were in the neighborhood of $100 – $125, but that was in 2007. It is nearly always best to purchase the Swarovski SCS AE figurine complete with box and certificate, as it may not always be easy to find a replacement box or replacement certificate at what a collector deems a reasonable price to pay for it.
