Here are some more assorted pictures of Hagen Renaker Minis. Many of these pieces are very hard to find.

Rare Hagen Renaker Butterflies

There is a lot of confusion about these butterflies, so I will add extra information to help clarify everything
These Butterflies are so rare you never see them. This is what causes the confusion.
The Monarch is a Monrovia era butterfly that was made 1950 and 1951 only
It comes in 3 sizes, # 99 pictured on left, # 115 shown in blue and #113
# 113 is pictured as the small Monarch and a test color yellow with black outlined wings
The small butterflies are # 490 and were produced in 1961 only
4 of the small butterflies are test colors
The 2 yellow butterflies are # 114, which were originally from the 50's, but these are San Dimas test colors
# 114 has raised wing veins so it feels more ribbed
The blue # 115 was probably made in 1967
The bottom pink and blue butterflies are much more delicate pieces.
They were made in the Fall of 1971 only and are models # 307 and 308
Another butterfly # 489 was made in 1961 but isn't pictured here
Collectors and one of the books, call some of these moths
Hagen Renaker never made mini moths
They did produce a rare DW Moth
