I acquired her from a collector of rare vintage Barbie dolls, she had many rare US, European, and Japanese exclusive dolls and outfits and this was one of them. From what Ive read and understand, Mattel was transitioning to the American Girl dolls, but still had left over swirl and bubblecut heads. Since Mattel liked to use all leftover parts, these heads ended up on American Girl Bend Leg bodies. She is in her original box, but has been removed. Her hair is still in the original set, but the swirl portion is a little loose.Face paint is complete, lips are faded. Only one hole in each ear and no green. The rim of the head is marked MATTEL COPR 1958. The body is very nice with the only notable issue being some green on the underarms from being displayed on the stand. Knees hold all three positions. Youll also be getting the original pearl earrings and gold stand.
The stand has some general wear. The booklet and wrist tag are missing. The box is very nice, but does have some corner and edge wear as seen in the photos. End of the box is stamped BLONDE like it should be for this type of doll. On a normal production box the hair color was either on a sticker or typed in line with the stock number.
