I check for VD spots and try to put each doll back closest to original specs whenever I can. Please expect some amount of wear. With that said, I spend a lot of time cleaning dolls and clothes to put sets back together. I throw out anything that has vinyl deterioration on the faces. I do not always throw out a body or head that has a contained spot in a hidden area (legs, under the hair, feet).
The vinyl deterioration is not contagious and will not spread as long as the dolls are stored properly- ventilated when in high humidity environments or stored with desiccant. I throw out clothes that are really stained or ripped. Each doll may have minor variations, color discolorations, marks or factory production defects that I cannot control.
If the doll is listed then I feel that it is a good loose specimen, appropriate for any collection or for play. Most of the items that I sell are vintage, used and loved- they are RARELY going to be perfect. You may consider something a problem that I have not even considered as a defect. I strive to take high quality pictures from all sides of the item which is the BEST description of any item and I do my best to highlight any notable defects.
