He is in great vintage condition. According to the Shirley Temple Collectibles Guide by Tonya Bervaldi-Camaratta, she would be an 8+/10.
She has almost no crazing on the composition (extremely minor craze lines on her cheek). Her eyes are crazed but open and close well. She has almost no rubs near her joints.She has some light bubbling below her nose. There is some slight discoloration on her neck. She has all of her face paint. She has nice, full lashes with none missing, along with the painted lashes.
She has all of her original curls -- no missing hair and her wig is entirely original and tagged (and in incredible shape). Please see pictures -- they are an important part of the description. The clothing is in fantastic vintage condition. The tagged wig is extremely rare. The original box has been repaired on the lid but it is sturdy.
The dress is in fantastic condition and includes the Rayon tag. It is featured on page 33 of the previously mentioned Collectibles Guide, with the following text: A shorter version of The Littlest Rebel Dress.Much easier to find than the longer version but still rare. It came in red, blue, green and yellow. The dress did not come with pantaloons or a hat. There is an extremely careful repair made on the back of the dress that I completed myself. The shoes are in good vintage condition. They are not perfect, but continue to have a solid construction. The socks are in good shape -- please see pictures.
The pin is in good condition with a little darkening on the back. However, the front of the pin is in good shape. It says "The World's Darling, Genuine Shirley Temple, an Ideal Doll" on the front and C Ideal Novelty and Toy Co.Around the edge, as well as her signature underneath. Overall a great doll that displays excellently with a very rare, high quality outfit. Comes from a smoke and pet free home and will arrive carefully and professionally wrapped. The balance is due within 90 days.
