    The single line ones are much older and more desirable. You dont see shells that often but its really hard to tell how many are really out there.

    The gold tagged items are older and collected, certain old fished up items are more desirable such as,

    Yellow tagged wearables that are Double Blessed
    (hats, bandannas etc)

    Dont know what pictures are rarer, maybe just the yellow tagged lady in red one?

    I don't think the shells are all that hard to find, I have seen several of them (old tagged) on various shards for 50-200k

    I would be interested aswell to so what else could be considered rarer and or harder to acquire these days.

    In my experience...

    Gold titled shipwreck items are the ones that are considered prepatch and thus 'rare'. The below information is for the prepatch gold titled versions. Current shipwreck aren't worth much.

    The pillows aren't that uncommon with the rectangle ones the most desirable decor wise. Paintings you can find pretty easily as well and they can be turned with a deco tool. Blue lady gives the red lady when turned. The large painting goes for the most. Shells are pretty common although the nautilus is the slightly more expensive of them. In my experience.. the clothing can hard to find (sandals, skullcap etc), if they have the (blessed) prepatch tag they can go for millions. The other items can go for a decent amount in my experience like the unfinished barrel, stool, globe, bone piles, body parts etc and are less common than the shells, paintings and pillows.

    These items are a great beginner collector item as you can start collecting some of them for under 25k. Hope that helps ya out and good luck!

    Unfortunately, I haven't had much luck with the prepatch yellow tagged items selling for anymore than the ones you fish up now. Even at 5k the shells, pillows small paintings etc just sit on the vendor.

    In my head I have these characterized with the prepatch plants that say "A decorative plant" or "a decorative purple plant" instead of a decorative purple snake plant." Maybe someday it will be a bit more desirable but there is too much of it right now.

    does the weight of these pictures make a difference? The majority I have seen are 10 stones- but I do own a lady in blue with a weight of only 1 stone
