When my granddaughter was very small she received a lot of these types of dolls to play with. The doll you have is a no-name doll that was designed for small children to play with and give a name to the doll. They are not a big seller and normally you could pick one of these dolls up in the market for around $10 or so during the holidays or other times of the year. If you are interested in selling this doll you may get around $1 for the doll because it was mass-produced in China as a child's toy to play with. The reason I am saying this is because of the hair on the doll and the way it sits. A lot of these types of dolls were bought to sit on a child's bed in their room and the child could also play with the doll.

What I can make out from your photo the doll looks like it is rubber and the head of the doll looks like it is sewn onto a soft body. It looks just like some of the dolls my granddaughter use to play with when she was a baby.

My records show that dolls marked PA are "unknown American USA doll maker" that are mostly made in China.

The doll looks like it has had a haircut, which if that is the case, will devalue it.

It is a "quasi" reborn doll or a reborn style--but not a Reborn doll.

Reborn means dolls that are realistic to the touch and feel and smell. Yours is in the style of that with the realistic face, but the body and hands are not of that style.

This kind of doll--if you are asking for value--does best sold at a consignment shop for whatever price your local market will bear for it. That could be as low as $5.

If you want to double check me--because I am far from perfect with my doll ID, but I have researched for years, show the doll on Facebook at one of the doll groups. The one that may do the best for you is called let's id our dolls -- type it in to the Facebook search as typed here with the lower case letters.

They only ID dolls. The will not value so don't ask.

If they tell you something different, please come back and I can help you value the doll!

She is so cute!
That turned up nose just sets her off!
Made in China is not a good sign but I believe you can find out more if you will post pictures and information - add anything you remember about her - how old she 'might' be or how long you've had her and size for sure.
These sites will not be able to help you without additional pictures and most will not state value unless they have seen one listed online.
Pictures will have to be without any clothing - full shots of front and back - close ups of face and back of neck or anywhere any marks/numbers are found.

You can contact this site that can answer about antique dolls, https://nadda.org - you can send your info and pictures of your doll. They have the answers- Currently on line dolls of this caliber are not bringing much, because there are so many for sale. The average payout is $5 to $25 for (90% of them) unless a collector is in search of this one.
