Her ponytail, I believe was retied into the original style by Gene. Her face is so pretty, with the luminous air-brushed appearance.
She has all-original paint, no retouch. She has nice original blush, so hard to find! Her only flaw is some of the air-brushed paint has rubs on the left side of her face. I have taken very close-up pics to show this.
You can see it clearly in the photos, but on the doll it is much, much less visible. She still has gorgeous face paint, with nice brows (tiny rub on right one), lovely eyes and full red lips (very small rub on lip). No neck split, nose nip or other damage. Her solid #4 "Barbie-TM" body is in amazing condition.She has tight limbs, 100% red nail polish, beautiful stance. She will come to you in her original B&W swimsuit in near mint condition and a pair of black OT shoes, in her box with the Gene Foote label.
The red checked outfit is NOT included, I put the photo in to show how beautiful she looks modeling your favorite fashion. JUST A BEAUTIFUL AND RARE PONYTAIL FOR YOUR COLLECTION! All my items are in a non-smoking environment.I have described everything to the best of my ability, but could have missed something. NOTE: I have had some questions on the doll's face. The area on the left side of her face is not a mark on the vinyl that can be removed. It is where the air-brushed paint is missing (rubbed) allowing the original peachy vinyl color to show.
As I mentioned, it is more visible in magnified photos than it is on the doll. Very few of these air-brushed face #4's exist, so despite her little flaws, she is beautiful and a rarity!OK, the sentence didn't come out above--the area on the face cannot be felt with the finger, it is completely smooth, not rough.
