1966 Doll Marking

Barbie Miscellaneous

 

 
# 1 Barbie 1959

The 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 counted sixty actual vintage dolls marked 1966 and sold from 1967 to 1976. There are many, many Barbie dolls made from the 1980s to present with a 1966 date in the mark ( 1966 is the date the patent was registered in that particular country), for these modern dolls, use the table below to see when your doll was actually made & sold.

 

If your doll is marked with a 1966 plus the country name below, then see the dates the doll was actually made/sold
