Additional Notes On This Doll:
You may ask what a "Lightly Restored" doll is. Good question.
Since I restore and sell dolls, I need words to define the varying levels of restoration applied to a doll.
I always do the least amount necessary to make the doll look "factory fresh" while keeping her as original as possible.
This doll needed a little help - not really all

Very Good Lightly Restored Condition. Doll has a new mohair wig, renewed eyes. Very light crazing, no chips two tiny cracks around eyes - normal paint wear to all joints and a few small spots of dirt that did not come off with cleaning - No lifting or flaking of her surface. Wearing an NRA tagged dress, original onesie, socks and shoes. Her dress is missing the boat applique and missing one button in back. The tag is bright.
