    That was a source of frustration for me as a kid trying to explain to dealers at toy shows that their vintage Barbie was actually brand new.
    You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...

    Yeah, I knew a huge Barbie dealer here (she got a lot of Mego) and it was the bane of her existance.

    Sorry for the late reply. Yes it's the date on the back of the body. Thanks!

    I still have my old Big Jim, Jeff and Josh from childhood. They are from 1976 to 1978.
    Jim still has the "open hands", while the other two have the later "gripping hands".

    Here is the copyright info on the back of my Big Jim (got him in 1976 or 1977):
