Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser, and I'd be happy to help.

This doll would be composition, and would date from 1916-1930, so would have been made a good bit earlier.

The current resale value would be approximately $100-$150.

Sincerely,

Jennifer

There are many more but I will stop here for now...please let me know if I can help further, provide more records, etc. Or perhaps I am identifying the wrong doll--I can look at a photo for you?
