The #1 has holes in the feet with copper tubes inserted. The brown eye shadow and the same faded vinyl skin tone makes the #3's look rather anemic, but that's what collectors like, even though less were produced with blue eye shadow.It can be difficult to tell the #3 and #4 Ponytails apart when they have blue shadow.Examples: Barbie's hair may be missing the original hair bands and be out of the original style but there are no haircuts or a lot of missing plugs.Ken may have a few hair rubs, but he is not bald or missing large amounts of flocking.The first batch of Ken dolls also had larger eyebrows than the painted-hair Ken's, although flocked-hair Ken's were produced with thinner eyebrows over time.Some have greasy faces, faded body color and painted legs like the Barbie dolls do.Excellent w/box: This is based on dolls with the original box, outfit and accessories that have excellent face paint or very minor restoration, minor body issues, full head of flocking with only tiny spots (Ken).Very few Ponytails have the original top and bottom bands because the rubber bands disintegrate, so a professional restyle is common.

Unfortunately, the plastic used for the head sometimes "sweats" and results in what collectors call "greasy face." Sometimes the head color darkens as well. Despite being mass produced by this time, the 1961 fifth-issue Ponytails are still very detailed and individual in appearance like the earlier Ponytails.
