Here is the background story, I went to a local thrift store and was looking to get some cheap toys for my dog, cuz he destroys toys pretty fast… and as I was looking this caught my eye, I know nothing about bears but can see quality when I see it.. what is it ? Looks like hand made and was wondering the value ? I think I paid a few bucks for it, thanks!
Also looks in very good condition for something made in 1979.
Your bear seems to be handmade. The tag and jacket or coat seems be from a Paddington Bear.

I've done a little bit more research for you. The pictures were not very good or too clear. To me looks like gentle Ben from the late sixties. Here's a link that one sold on eBay.
