Nancy Drew #1262 is a 12 character doll that was manufactured by Madame Alexander in 1967 only. She belongs to the Literature Series of dolls and is all original with a worn and detached wrist tag. Missing is its pink string.
Nancy Drew is a pretty doll with finely stroked brown brows, blue sleep eyes with painted under lashes and fully molded upper lashes, blush, and a closed coral mouth. Her right eye may be a tad lighter than her left eye. Nancy Drew is complete with her tan linen? Brass buttoned coat (pinholes on lower left sleeve), coordinating tan A-line dress, blue scarf (faded), satin panties, nylons, and tan faux suede boots.The back of her coat is tagged Nancy Drew Madame Alexander New York U. Her long strawberry blonde/light auburn hair still retains one of its clear plastic hair pins, a fragment of its original hairnet, and its blue velvet ribbon which has become worn and soiled with age and storage. Her outfit remains fairly clean though her coat sustains an imperfection line in its weave to the right side of its third brass button, its button holes have dimmed possibly brass transfer, and its faux suede boots sustain wear & crackling to their faux suede with more notable white stitching pulls along their front seams. The outer edge of its right boot sustains a faint stain and dark scuff.
Attached to Nancy Drew's right hand via a pink thread are her red plastic bag and black camera. She does not come with sunglasses. Not sure she ever did-- Her stringing is loose.
Though she appears UN-played with she may need a gentle dusting and removal of grime around her neck opening. I believe that Nancy Drew #1262 is the first doll in the Nancy Drew series from 1967. She is certainly a rarity and may add further interest to your Nancy Drew collection. She has been in my collection for well over ten years now, but I have decided to part with her, though difficult.Nancy Drew was my favorite literary sleuth and heroine when I was a child. I spent many fond hours adventuring with her as she cleverly solved mysteries. Though I have tried to provide an honest and detailed description, I may have omitted information that is important to you. I have also provided photos that speak volumes.
