She is still a stunning doll and her facepaint is all original, no retouches. ISSUES: Green ear on ears and hoop earrings; missing hair plug left side.
PLUSES: She has factory original facepaint, even a hint of original blush on both cheeks! Brunettes are still very rare to find compared to blondes. And despite the missing hair plug and her hair being retied, she is still a stunning doll. And she has the coveted Japan in a little box on one foot, meaning she is one of the earliest barbies made!If I can't sell her, I will gladly keep her. The remaining description below is accurate aside from the above mentioned green ear and hair plug.
Get your #1 Barbie for Barbie's 60th Anniversary this year! Sultry looks, smoky eyes, red lips, classic mid-century style! The original Number One Brunette Ponytail Barbie and this gal has got it all!
She has her original swim suit, hoop earrings, black number one open toe shoes, and sunglasses. The doll is gorgeous with some rosy cheek blush, shiny hair and big red lips. All face paint is original, the top knot and bottom wraps were professionally replaced due to the original bands crumbling from age. Pretty much the same pink/creamy color all over. Nice curly bangs and good nail and toe polish.
She's a gorgeous doll. Both tubes are visible in her feet.No neck knob issues, neck splits, (SEE ABOVE ABOUT GREEN EAR _green ear; missing hair plug), NOTHING!
