I want to clarify that the number on this doll is very faint, and I do not think it is 886, but again, it does very definitely say S & H. She is somewhat a mystery. The last number I can make out is definitely an 8.If you believe this is not a 1078, please offer with this in mind. The soles of her shoes are tan, and she does not have numbers on her arms or legs. Her body is old and original to the doll.

More corrections: The numbers on the buttocks are penciled in, it says 802. The right thumb shows a very small repair done some time ago. It looks like the numbers on the left hand say 8 1/2.
Thank you and Happy offerding!
