1958 Vintage Color Magic Barbie Hair Ruby Red Doll Side Part Bendable Legs 1960s:
A week ago I purchased an early 1960s Barbie case filled with Barbie dolls, clothing and accessories. I knew the stuff was good but little did I know just how good! So starting today and for the next few days or so I will list the contents of this case. All the sales will have BIN's and if you win multiple sales you can save BIG on combined shipping!!
So up first, little did I know, is perhaps the rarest Barbie I have ever had the pleasure of selling! I did not realize it at first but what I believe we have here is a 1960s Barbie Color Magic doll. I think the hair color is referred to as ruby red and she is simply breathtaking, like the prettiest, sexiest Barbie I have ever seen! I am not a Barbie expert so I will try and describe the condition the best I know how. Her eyes, eyebrows, eyelashes, and lips appear to be in GREAT shape. Like who ever owned this doll did not play with it much if at all. The nail polish is also in great shape. She has NO earing holes. I do not know if she is supposed to have toe polish cause I do not see any. Her hair looks very nice and no idea if it has been cut? It appears full, lush and vibrant! Her legs are bendable and click into place nicely. All her joints seem nice and strong (legs, shoulders, and neck). She has a 1958, MIJ hallmark as pictured. I will be critical and point out that she has one obvious compression point on the side of her left calf (see last pic), and on the side of her other calf is just a very very slight one. Below her left butt-cheek is a slight red stain, perhaps it can be cleaned. Finally, her legs have toned differently, which I have tried to illustrate in the 11th picture. I am guessing that this was caused by how she may have been laying in this case for decades and as a result the legs may have oxidized differently if that makes sense? Besides those issues she just has some typical slight wear and slight staining like on her hip and left lower arm. She has not been cleaned. I have left the condition original so you know exactly what you are getting. Perhaps what ever dust you see can be washed away. The bottom line is that she is in great condition for her age and her head and face look absolutely AMAZING!!! Not sure what else to say. Feel free to ask specific questions about anything since again I am not a Barbie expert. Buyer pays shipping fee based on zip-code. Paypal accepted. PA residents add 6% sales tax.
PS: there were just a few Color Magic accessories that I am gonna list today in the next sale.
