Markings on the back of doll's head can mean different things but generally always describe the maker, maybe the artist, usually a number in a series (2/5000) would mean number 2 doll out of a series of 5000 that was produced, a mold number, date made and could mean other things.
Here are a couple of links that explain these markings.

If all you are wanting to know is what do these markings mean on your doll then it would help someone identify her better if we had other photos, more information about the doll (how old is the doll, how did you acquire it, what names have you been told associated with the doll, size of doll). There is not enough information in the markings for me to identify the doll (this type of marking would probably need to be seen by a doll collector and they may still need more information).


You may be able to take the doll to a vintage or antique doll store for help or you can go to some sites that have ID markings listed (photos) and sift through (maybe hundreds) to see if you can find your markings.
Maybe someone else will have a better idea of these markings.

I am not familiar with these markings. There may be markings on the doll's chest, back or feet. You need to know how old the doll was and who made it to determine the value.
