From my personal collection, kept in a locked display case...
A stunning Vintage 1966 Silver Brunette Long Haired American Girl Barbie
with her 1070 Japan box.
Barbie is inNear Mint condition
She is all original including her swim suit, sandals, and cellophane protecting her hair!
No green ear, no neck splits, no nips. Beautiful makeup is all intact.
She has the very rare high color "Color Magic" face. Bright geranium red lipstick and plenty of smokey eye shadow.
Nice even complexion over her entire body.
There is a single pinprick near her right ankle as shown and
a small mark on her inner left leg near the knee (see photos).
Also a tiny black spot on her left shin.
The mark could likely be removed with "Remove Zit",
I'd be willing to attempt it for the winning buyer (takes a couple of days). But it's barely noticeable.
Nail polish is 100%, and the toes are perfect. No trace of polish on the toes, I believe
she came that way from Mattel.
Hair is in the original set and super long, no missing plugs and no haircut.
No earring holes or green.
She has the correct bend-leg body with the more rare intaglio lettering on her backside.
Marked: © 1958 Mattel, Inc, U.S. Patented U.S. Pat. Pend Made In Japan.
Her body is excellent to near-mint, withboth legs bending nicely, VERY tight knee joints, and tight hips.
The box is in poor condition with lots of scratches and dings and the cover has been
taped together in the lower right corner. It does still have the original price tag, showing
that she sold for $2.69
Barbie comes to you in her original striped swimsuit, tagged Barbie R By Mattel,
in mint condition with no holes, rips, or tears, blue open toe shoes Japan, and hair cellophane.
Please ask questions prior to offerding because sales are final.

I was asked if there are any fade marks on the left side of her face. I can see that it looks that way in one of the images, but there's no fading on the doll herself, she has a nice even skin tone.
There have also not been any repairs, or restoration work.
The box, as I've said, is in rough shape. The hair color listed on one end is "brunette".
