None of the hair has been touched from its original styling. It is like she was just lifted from her box. There is a row of tiny circular impressions at the bottom of her ponytail which looks to me like they might have been made from a doll barrette years ago. She has perfect original face paint, NO RETOUCHES; her red lips have a teeny bit of fade to each corner, hardly visible.The rods in her feet are both visible (see picture). There is a shadow of pale peach, probably from her original swimsuit being on her body for years, on her torso. It is covered by the zebra swimsuit. Also on her feet from her black heels as is common with the 1s and 2s. The markings on her foot indicate JAPAN horizontally. She will come with her TM box in excellent condition. I don't think I have ever seen one of the earliest boxes in such beautiful condition. No seam tears or water stains at all, top or bottom. Perhaps one tiny scrape on the top cover over one graphic, hardly visible.
This doll is just one of the most gorgeous #1s I have ever seen that is in such wonderful and untouched condition. She will come to you wearing her original black and white zebra swimsuit with #1 black heels, sunglasses, and her Barbie fashion booklet (not the more rare earliest one). She is only modeling my "Gay Parisienne"; it is not included.
