Vintage Barbie Doll and Friends 1966 Doll Trademark Dates

# 1 Barbie 1959The main identifying doll mark for Mattel Barbie dolls and friends is located on the dolls buttock (modern dolls the mark is on the lower back, at the waist).  There are additional numbers on the inside arms, inside thighs, the back of the heads on the neck rim; these were probably manufacturer part numbers used to assemble the dolls and do not have any importance in trying to identify the Barbie doll or year it was on the market.

 

We have counted sixty actual vintage dolls with the 1966 date in the marking and sold from 1967 to 1976. There are many more Barbie's made 1980s to present, with the 1966 trademark date in the marking, too many and you'll have a hard time convincing the doll sellers they are not vintage dolls, sigh.

 

So take your 1966 Date + Add the Country Name and see below for when she was Actually Produced
