Of the end of the listing so that I have time to respond. This Barbie doll is 57 yrs. Old & I have honestly listed the condition issues I see with her, her clothing, accessories & other items which are included. However, what we find important as buyers may be different.
Body, limbs, head of doll internally or externally having discolorations, stains, scratches, odors, molds, wear to the vinyl/plastic/rooted hair or replacement of said parts. Restoration to body, limbs, head, face or hair of doll including restyling of hair, repainting of face, body or limbs. Also, I do not "test" any of the doll's paint to determine if it has had a repaint/touch-up. Feel free to message me with any questions you may have or for additional photos I like hearing from you; be sure it's within 48hrs. Welcome to my listing for a vintage number #3 brunette ponytail Barbie from 1961.
She comes with her zebra striped OSS, black Japan OTS, original sunglasses, vintage booklet. Please take your time viewing all the photos as they are a very important part of the description. Description: My description is based on what I see. I have always collected what I love & as mentioned above, this #3 PT is 57yrs.
Old, so I'm sure she has been loved by her previous owners especially some lucky child who received her in 1961 :o. 1 She has no nose nips, neck splits, punctures, missing fingers or toes. 2 Her torso & head is lighter than the rest of her body. She smells like crayons which is common with #3's. Her body could use a good wash as it has dirt & stains as pointed out in the photos with black arrows which may be surface but unsure.
I don't know if any of this can be removed as I don't clean, restore or restyle dolls. Her fingernail polish appears to be original and is still bright red with some receding color on her last three fingers of her left hand. Her toenails still retain their red polish with some receding on her right foot. There are light scratches on front & back of torso & hips have the common factory indents on both sides. Her right foot is stamped "Japan" & has a red dot/stain on outer side of her foot.
Both soles of her feet have dirt. Her butt has the raised lettering "Barbie" which can be seen & the TM can barely be seen due to age. 3 Her hair is a lovely without any missing plugs as far as I can see.
Top & bottom knots have replacement bands & ribbon & bottom of ponytail have a lovely cluster of curls. Her hair has some flyaways from being in storage. She has 2 earring holes which have darkened as seen in photos. I do not see signs of a greenish cast on her right lobe, this doesn't rule out that there may be some but I do see a green cast on her left.
Although her earring holes have been like this since I've owned her, I have not seen a growth or spreading of green ear. I have not removed her head since owning her so I do not know the condition of her neck knob. She has lovely blue eyeliner & brows with a bit of fading on outer right brow. She has full lips with areas of wear to lip color. Unfortunately, some are very late to pay or do not pay at all.
Please contact me immediately if you believe you may have difficulty paying or need more time. Thank you for your understanding.
