I have been told that because she has straight legs her head has been placed on an older, straight leg body. I have seen several of these dolls, mostly blonde with the straight legs through the years and have never been able to understand why anyone would prefer this pretty head on a body without the bend legs. I thought it may be a transitional doll. Her hair is very nice and full and is actually a little smushed at the back so you can see through it but she is missing no plugs. Her torso is overall pretty clean but her legs are soiled.
The places on the front of her upper thigh have for the most part rubbed off with my finger so I believe them to be quite superficial. Her face is near perfect, with all of her make up intact. Her lips have turned buttery.Except for a couple of little areas on her lips that are missing paint. There is no green ear as she has no earring holes. Her original swimsuit retains both the Barbie tag and a paper (sewn into the seam) made in Japan tag which Ive never seen.
Her left shoe is marked Japan as it should be. This is a very pretty example of this doll. Please look at all of my photographs as they are the visual portion of my description.
