He is 940/3000. The certificate states, "About 1894 Margarete Steiff introduced her first collection of 22 dolls. In 1904 the series was extended to include a group of character dolls. As part of these series Peasant Jorg size 45 cms, with a costume of the Brenz valley was developed in 1915 and is being reproduced in 1987-88 as Limited Edition Replica of 3,000 pieces.
