The doll has a water stain on her right temple/under-eye. It is hidden under the brim of her hat and, unfortunately, is only barely visible in the included close-up photo. I cannot add photos without canceling this listing, and it is certainly not my intent to mislead, so please contact me to see this add'l photo view.
