This absolute exceptional condition, 1960 #3/#4 Ponytail Barbie doll is a must have for the collector. It is part of the Patricia Long collection. It is very hard to decide if she is a #3 or #4. I have had different collectors express their interest and info of which one she could be. Exceptional condition for her age, she would be a keepsake for sure for the Barbie Collector.
One thing for sure is that she is 60 years old. For 50 years she has been kept safe, clean, preserved in her little abode waiting for her new home. Never washed, just loving cared for. There is a very slight light pink mark on the inside of her leg, as seen in the pic above. She has baby blue eyeshadow, black eyeliner, iris blue pupils.
There is no fading or discoloration of her skin color over the years. For her age, many would envy having a bod like this in their golden years :- She is not a transitional Barbie. If you truly are a collector of vintage Barbie's you will know this is a rare find for this excellent condition Barbie.
