This number two is probably the prettiest one I have owned in my 30 years of collecting. Her face paint is all original except for small touches to her black eyelash ridges.
(Ask for the photo taken before any restoration work was done to her , and I'll send it) And I added a little blush. It is very hard to find these dolls with their lips in this condition.There are no lip rubs and they are not faded at all. She does not look as harsh as most of these #1 or #2s. In fact she is almost smiling. Her head is not particularly shiny like some of these.
Her skin tone still has some pleasing beige and it looks closer to the first photo than some of the others which washed out her color. Her hair is played with. At the lower band about a third of the hair has been trimmed a quarter or 3rd inch, so her bottom curl is not as thick as it should be. Her head matches her neck and chest perfectly. She has more pink wear her swimsuit would be.
Her arms and her legs are also more pink. The box is not marked with a hair color. It has wear and some splitting to the corners and edges.Her limbs are tight and her neck knob is sturdy. This is not a reproduction or a re-root! Make sure you see my other Barbie auctions this week. These dolls do not meet modern safety standards for children.
