The bottom of the box has one broken corner with brown tape residue as well around the outside. The black wire stand is in very good condition and stands straight. The neck liner is in good condition with some tiny cracks in the paper where her neck was and has the 2 holes for the prongs on the wire stand to go when packed. The booklet is in good condition with nice colors, NO writing and some creasing on the pages. The booklet has a paper clip on the page where the "ken" clothes start and since it has been there for over 55 years I have left it in place.
The bright black and white swim suit is in great condition and still has very stretchy elastic at the top. The black Japan open toe shoes and white frame glasses are both in very good condition. Barbie's solid body is very nice with 99% of her finger and toe polish , tight joints, nice clean body except for on her back in the shoulder blade area (a little scuffing and light dirt) Her Barbie bottom letters are worn and a little hard to read.
By her right hip area there is some darkness _ see pictures. Her shiny brunette original hair-do is in very good condition with the "original banana curl " and the end of her pony tail mostly in tak see pictures. Her pony tail is a little off center in the back with the outside of the curl pulled a little - see pictures.
Her original top knot is great shape and her tight curly bangs are also very nice. ALL her original face paint is very nice. Her face looks like she is sweating with beads of sweat on her lovely face - which is why I assume she is a transitional doll. BOTH pearl ear rings are dark brown and have NOT been removed - there is NO green ear.The item "# 4 5 TRANSITIONAL BARBIE IN ORIGINAL BOX WITH ACCESSORIES NICE VERY NICE" is in sale since Tuesday, October 22, 2019.
