Colani Elephant money boxes, How to tell how old they are ?

Colani Elephant money boxes, originally uploaded by planetutopia.

Designed by Luigi Colani for Dresners Bank in Germany in the 1960s, these money boxes have become a design icon, and are becoming increasingly sort after.
There is alot on confusion for buyer's, over the different types on Elephants. So here's some help.......
This Elephant is not a reproduction, its a second generation original 1970s, it has the "Dresdners Bank" logo marked on the base, small original elephants are also unopenable. ( +Very rare)
1st generation originals are made of a softer plastic, they have the Dresdner logo inbetween the legs on the smaller elephants, (these are like gold dust, & Very very rare) , but usually quite worn, with eyes missing.
90's reproductions still precious, but not quite as rare, these have no logo, and have a black plastic base which can be opened.
Some people like new things, some like old worn things, some like shiney things, but i think buyers have a right to know what they are buying.
