Hi,

Please send a clear in-focus photo of her face and of the 1959 mark.

You can send the photos at your convenience. There is not an extra charge to provide more pictures here.

Hi,

I am wondering if you are still interested in having your item assessed?

Please let me know and do you have requested images available?

I look forward to reading back from you.

Sincerely,

Nora

Hi,

I can date and value this for you. In order to do so, I will need to see a clear in focus image of her face and of the mark on the back. Will you be able to provide photos?

not possible on computer, no smart phone.
Expert:  Nora replied 10 months ago.

Hmmm. Okay, if you give me a bit here, I may be able to figure out a work-around to the no photo issue.

Hi,

If you follow the guide on this link, then you can determine the version of Barbie you have. When you establish that, let me know and then I will get the sale value for you:
