This first issue #8587 was made in Japan. Her marking as well as her foot both state that. She may have been released in 1970, but I'm thinking she probably wasn't released until 1971 or 1972. The blonde's original packaging from England has an offer on the package for a free 1972 fashion. The blonde version is very hard to find.
