For your consideration is this Fabulous NUMBER ONE BRUNETTE PONYTAIL BARBIE with her TM Box, marked 850. Original blush, vintage #1 hoop earrings, original loose curls at bottom of ponytail, original top knot, and original red lips (they are shinier in the middle and a bit faded on outside edge of lips as the color gradually oxidized). She is just stunning with a long, soft ponytail and a multitude of tiny curls in her bangs. Only one Brunette #1 Ponytail was made for every two #1 Blondes so they hold greater value in the secondary vintage Barbie market all these many years later. No hair trims, no missing fingers, no nose nips, no neck knob issues.She does have about four to six tiny pinpricks near each ear. (see pictures) Not bad and mostly only visible using 10X magnification. She has some staining on the bridge of her feet from her black heels, as is common with the 1s and 2s. She has the metal tubes in both feet; one is pushed a bit up the inside of her leg but I can feel it when I gently probed once with a thin metal skewer.
Her box is in good to very good condition with some water stains to graphics and a split seam. It is the appropriate Barbie "TM" box used for the 1959 Barbies. She will come wearing her original zebra swimsuit (not a repro), #1 hoop earrings, sunglasses, the #1 Barbie booklet showing "Gay Parisienne" and "Roman Holiday", and black #1 heels. But what is best of all is that fabulous original cheek blush, so rare to find 57 years later, and so appealing on the earliest ponytails. See pictures as it is still very visible.
I will entertain all serious offers. Thank you for your interest.
