This beautiful Fashion Queen Barbie c. 1964 comes to you in her original metallic gold and white swimsuit and turban, with metallic gold wedge PAK sandals, (these sandals are vintage and of her era, and display well with the original swimsuit). Her face paint is all-original (no repaints) and lovely, Her Midge/Barbie body is original to her and has retained some of her fingernail polish. She is completely original with no repaints or repairs.
CONDITION: Overall excellent, with some minor flaws as noted: As mentioned, no rubs to her face paint, and retains some of her original fingernail polish. No neck splits or green ear or other body flaws. She does have some rubs to her hair paint (but they are nicely placed). There is some minor surface dirt on her legs, and I believe her hair band is replaced. Minor wear to bottom of bathing suit (a few threads can be seen). She has replaced "safe" pearl earrings. Very minor indentation to left hand (as if child 55 years ago put hand briefly in her mouth). Joints are tight and hold poses; maybe some slight swinginess to the left arm in the almost-down position.
MARK: on her butt:
