This is the number 6 Barbie doll from 1964 with curly blond ponytail hair, dressed in her original red swimsuit. Her hair is in great condition and yes, that is the original rubber band. Barbie still has her original earrings. They were in place for more than 45 years, causing a green mark underneath one earring only. I've since taken the earrings out and will include with shipment, of course. The internet has a number of treatment methods to remove the green but I did not attempt any of them and I know the original owner did not either.
Barbie's face paint looks good with a possible very tiny rub to the side of her upper lip. My apologies for not wiping the dust from around her eyes, I didn't notice it until after the pictures were taken. Her fingernail paint is about 85% percent intact, her toenails the same or better. Barbie's body has no nicks, scratches, or damage. Her swimsuit has a small spot at the back and a pinpoint mark at the chest which may be an ink mark. I did not wipe the doll down or clean her in any way as I didn't want to do anything to damage it, but she was obviously well cared for and has had only one owner until now.
