I need to see photos of each piece and of the marks so that I can determine what you have.

Will you be able to add pictures?

At some point, will you be able to get pictures of your dolls? Perhaps a friend or relative can take some photos with their smart phone or digital camera? There is not a time limit here, so you can take as long as you need to get photos loaded here.
