Please use the Add Files feature on your screen to add pictures of the doll and the marks that you have described.
Also look on the back of her neck or shoulder for any more marks.

Hello Jim,

My name is ***** ***** I"m happy to help.

You have a collection of modern dolls, most of which are reproductions or fantasy items. They are all limited edition productions, and the problem with those is that they have virtually no secondary market. I have seen boxes and boxes of them at auctions, with the auctioneer trying to get a $10 bid on the entire box. The original prices have no bearing on their current value.

If your dolls are in excellent condition, their current retail values average approximately $20 each.

I hope this answer has been helpful to you Jim.

If you have any further questions or problems concerning this answer, please let me know.

If you would like to work with me on further questions you might have, it would be a pleasure to work with you again. All you have to do is put my name (Judith) at the beginning of your question.

I need your positive rating! Could you very kindly rate my services (with the stars or "accept" button) as this is how I get paid by JustAnswer, at no extra cost to you. We can still continue to communicate here on this thread after you do.

Thank you so much!
