Cut or Uncut?
I'm partial to partially-cut sets. They're less expensive, easier to find, and there's the wonder of a paper doll that a child actually played with. Betsy is unusual, with both tabbed and wrap-around outfits, and that's what drew me in when I found her in a box in an unofficial sales event at San Antonio (ie., someone opened their hotel room for sales before the convention began). Most of the outfits were cut out. No markings indicating date or publisher, but that's part of the fun: getting to rifle through the Mary Young books in search of the answers!
UPDATE: This is a Sam Gabriel set called Dolly and Her Dresses. No year given in the latest MY book, however.
