This here is a #3 Brunette Barbie doll from 1960. The #3 Barbie's are very different from the #1 or #2. They have rounder eyebrows, blue eyes and the eyeliner was changed to make her more softer and fresh faced. This one has brown eye liner on the upper lids only. Her skin tone is very pale because due to a flaw in the type of vinyl used on the first three issues of Barbie, the pink skin tones tends to fade to a sickly white. It gets worse through the years!
They came out with 22 outfits for her that year, she is wearing #982 Solo in the Spotlight. It's a Black glitter gown with bare shoulders and rose corsage on nylon net flounce. It also came with long black tricot gloves, pink scarf, bead necklace, black plastic pumps and a plastic microphone.
She is also wearing something very rare. It's a Genuine Mink Stole! This Mink Stole came out in 1964 and was a Sears Exclusive for Barbie even though it has a tag inside that says Barbie by Mattel! This Mink Stole today is very rare and very hard to find! The original Sears catalog price was $9.99 in 1964. Today it's worth over $3,000!
