WHAT FOLLOWS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH ANYTHING SPECIFIC in this listing. Barbie 1960's Dressed Box Japanese Market #992 Golden Elegance.
Japan Marketed Exclusive Dressed Box Dolls Circa 1960's - Bubble Cuts/Ponytails. Note that being boxed with earrings, it's difficult to find them without some amount of green ear.
The stand, booklet, and boxes have unique characteristics to them. The box bottoms will a tariff stamp sticker on the bottom end panel inside edge. To date, we have found no difference in the outfits themselves. Note that we've never seen a box without some mold staining issues - our theory for the cause is the Japan sea climate - it seems to be an impossible thing to avoid. The dolls often included a Japan market exclusive booklet (with a Japanese girl playing with her Barbies on the cover).
The earliest of these boxes included round #3 style, 2 piece stands with Japan exclusive gold lettering. Later issues would have a standard gold stand.
Golden Elegance A complete set included. L & L Collectables is a small, family run business.
