I will answer without based on the info you have given.

This is a circa 1900 bisque head child doll made by Simon and Halbig of Germany in mold number 1079, size 12.

This mold should have a human hair wig and sleep eyes. She should have an open smiling mouth with four upper teeth and blushed cheeks.

This doll, finger repair noted, has a current value of $400 to $450.00 retail.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are,,, Ebay and
You can also go to or and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.
