babs shoe line

Here's a guide for the standard grading system for Dolls, Clothes & Box conditions. *Note If the doll is still in the box you give (2)two grades, one for the doll condition and one for the box condition.

C-10 This is a Mint, Factory perfect doll whether In or Out of the box.

C-9 Near Mint. Very slight evidence that the doll or box has been handled. Stray Hairs or very light scuffing.

C-8 Some visible wear like minor dents or dings, but the doll is all original and still looks very good.

C-7 Still display quality, but has lost the quality of a new doll.

***Note- boxes below C-7 aren't worth anything extra to dolls value. If you just want the doll & she's in good shape then okay. But price range should be for that of an Out of Box Doll.

C-6 Gently played with. Parts or accessories may be missing.

C-5 Has visible wear & tear which can be repaired. All damaged should be listed.

C-4 Heavy flaws or wear. Played with or damaged & usually can't be repaired.
