Hello there
My name is ***** ***** I will try to help you in your question today. Thank you or using JustAnswer to solve your question.
Could you provide the back mark of each doll? It's not necessary a picture, the text is enough.
Thanks

Where are these numbers ?
Expert:  rusufdavi replied 1 year ago.
Hello
The mark is located at the back of the head of the doll, just beneath the hair. Sometimes they are also marked somewhere in the doll's body, it depends on the specific doll mold used.
Thanks

Good,
Effanbee F & B Dolls 1910-1939. Founded around 1910 in New York City, Effanbee stands for Fleischaker & Baum - F & B - who were the company founders. They became well known for being the first to produce a realistically proportioned child doll named Patsy.
There should be letters / numbers just after the name, Could you make them out?
Thanks

Ok! Could you tell me the pattent number? I can use this information to date the doll
