She never went to the "Doll Hospital" and all parts are original. Samantha is in very good condition. Skin and body are clean with no markings or stains. Her overall skin colors shows a little bit of age (her skin appears a little darker than a new doll's would be, and her cloth body has some age spots, which are visible in the pictures). Limbs are fully posable, eyes open and close, hair is very smooth.
Eyebrows seem very light, though it seems unlikely that that would be due to fading because they are covered by her bangs. Her hair could use a loving brushing, but I would rather leave that to a collector to decide.
All clothing is present: dress, stockings, and shoes. The elastic on her stockings has worn out over time and the waist-band is no longer stretchy. Below her knees, the tights are very pill-y. Her dress has no obvious marks or stains, but it does have two tiny pin-prick holes near the collar (pictured), where she used to wear the locket-pin that comes with her introductory accessories (not included).
If you are interested in those accessories, please let me know (hat, pin, wristlet change purse, hankerchief, coin). Velcro still works on the back of the dress and wrists. Non-smoking home without pets or perfume-wearers.
