Hello,
My name is ***** ***** I would love to help.
Please use the Add Files feature on your screen to add pictures of the doll and numbers or words impressed on the back of her shoulders and neck under the hair.

There are no photos here if you did try to add them. The feature works best if you add one, hit send, then do the next; rather than trying to do them all in one batch.

I check my bank account you have charged me $37. I have taken a picture I don't think I understand how to take the picture out of my I phone library to send to you?

How come no one has answered me?
Expert:  Rarewares replied 1 year ago.

You can email pictures to***@******.*** and put 'for rarewares in antiques' in the subject line.
Use the same email that you used when creating your account so that they will recognize you.
These do not arrive instantly, so thanks in advance for some patience when sending this way.

Expert:  Rarewares replied 1 year ago.

I was unable to open the movie that you sent. I will opt-out and allow another expert to answer.

Maybe they would be able to answer without pictures.
I am not able to respond once I opt-out. Good luck!

I received your movie, but it doesn't show what I need to see. Please upload clear pictures, showing the front of the doll, the back of the doll and a lose-up image of the marks on the doll's back.

Also, is the doll wearing her original clothing and accessories? Do her eyes open and close?

To answer your question: "Also, is the doll wearing her original clothing and accessories? Do her eyes open and close?"The doll’s eyes open and close. The clothing is not the original clothing that came with the Doll. The doll has porcelain teeth. And the doll pierced ears.

Thanks for the information, Ted, but I need to see the doll. Please send clear pictures in .jpg format. Please contact***@******.*** and someone will help you.
