This no. 850 Barbie from the early to mid-1960s was definitely not played with much at all. Her hair is in perfect condition; her manicure and pedicure still retain the medium pink polish; her blue eye shadow, mascara and eyebrows are still perfect; her lipstick has a tiny bit missing on her lower lip. Her earrings have, unfortunately, faded green on the side of her face at the hairline, but, with her brunette hair, it’s hard to detect from the front. In her original box is still the pamphlet that tells about the available Barbie and her other doll friends. The original arm tag is in the box as are her red shoes that match her original swimsuit. The stand that came with her is still in the box and has never been removed; I don’t think this doll was removed much either. Her body is in perfect condition. The box lid still retains its colorful pictures of Barbie in many outfits and has the original price tag with the retail price of $2.27! There is a tear on the bottom on the box, but 60-year-old cardboard does get brittle after a while! There are a couple of faint spots on the bathing suit that we have not tried to wash. They look superficial, but I can’t attest to that. She does have a maker’s mark on her bottom that seems to state: Midge TM 1962 Barbie @ 1958 By Mattel Patented.
