The box included skipper in her one-piece red and white swim-suit, red flat shoes, brass headband, white plastic brush & comb, black or gold wire stand, and booklet.

#950 Box. Some Skippers are marked "Dressed Doll", and she came wearing an outfit rather than a swimsuit
1964 #950 Straight-leg with pretty carrot red hair
Rare two-tone "color magic" hair. It looks like a modern day weave! It is brunette hair with red highlights or brunette with blonde tone highlights. Both have a brunette scalp.
The word "japan" on the bottom of an early straight-leg Skipper's foot. It is written from toe to heel. Some believe these were early sample dolls.
