    I just acquired a Simon & Halbig doll. She has a K*R on the back of her neck and just under the K*R are two holes. I cannot find any numbers. Any ideas about what the holes are for?

    Thank you Joan Halbig for your comments. Yes my grandmas doll was well loved but in remarkable condition. She even survived 2 large earthquakes. My grandma use to let me play with her when I was a child. She is now under a glass case, not my favorite but keeps her clean and intact. Thank you for sharing! I will be blogging on my doll later in the year, you can check out my website at www.mywesternheart.com Please stop in for a visit there :)

    Becky Barrow, sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. I truly don't know why the holes are there either. I have a book and it is mentioned in it that before the mold hardened the holes were cut for the eyes, mouth, pierced ears, and "any holes in the back of the head"; but no mention of why the holes were in the back of the head. Sorry I can't be of more help.

There was just something about this doll. I just had to have her. My bedroom was pink and black and she was the perfect fit.

    @Joan Halbig Your doll is just beautiful. I especially like her locket and earrings.

    Thank you. Earrings were on her when I got her. The locket was something I had lying around the house. Can't remember where I got it. Thought it would look good on her.
