Hello! I just saw an interview you did & this picture popped-up. The doll over your shoulder to the right looks like my late Mother's "Patsy" doll that I inherited. I took her for Show & Tell in 3rd grade & one of the boys stuck his finger in her mouth & knocked her teeth into her head! You can still hear them rattling around in there! Additionally, her hair needs some attention, as well as her limbs were loose & I repaired them myself when I was in 5th grade! I would love to have her repaired/restored in honor of my Mom! She always told the story of receiving Patsy when she was 6 years old (1932) and when she was 8 there was a terrible fire & her Uncle ran in to save Patsy! Can you give me an idea if you are available to look at her and approximately how much you charge? Thank you in advance for your attention to this matter! Have a nice day! Karen Rutherford

I've looked for my lost doll since I was 5 in 1947, when we moved she was left behind & we had no way to go back for her. My Mother sold out a punch board & she was the premium. Mother says it was supposed to be Betsy Ross but it looked more like a dance hall girl. She had a china head with real hair in a dark color in banana curls. Her arms from elbows down & legs from knees down wearing high heels were also china. Her clothes were burgundy & med. blue taffeta. The body was stuffed cloth. Have you ever seen a doll like this? I've checked ebay,with no luck and the Internet but can't find any dolls anywhere listed as punch board premiums. Do you have any idea what I'm referring to or suggestions to look for this type of doll? Surely she wasn't the only one ever made but I'm coming up blank from antiques stores to any source I can think to look. Any help would be appreciated. I enjoyed your section on Sunday Morning. I think what you do is GREAT. Sincerely, Patsy in Long Beach, CA.

I saw you on Sunday Morning and it sparked a memory of a baby doll I was given years ago by my husbands uncle. It had been his wifes doll. I found it after the show and I am interested in sending it to you to be repaired. She is unstrung and tooth was knocked out, broken eyelid & missing eyelashes. I think she is from around 1910, 25" bisque socket head, open mouth & sleep eyes. She looks like a Kammer & Reinhardt doll I have seen pictured. She is numbered 126 62.
