I do not see this exact Heritage doll on eBay. You could upload the pictures to www.replacements.com and they can identify it.

Most of these dolls were mass produced and very few were actually given names so it will be difficult to identify her.
There are presently over 1,400 Heritage dolls listed for sale on eBay.
You can always try looking for your doll (maybe narrow the search by adding description - pink dress, 15"?, blond.

You did not ask about value but if you are interested in current value you can check sold listings on eBay to see if a doll like yours has sold in the past several months. Most of these dolls are selling for less that $15-$20.

Red hair is sometimes a good thing but most people are not interested in a music box (who plays one more than a couple of times? And, they are not a good option for a child because they are easily broken).

It really does not matter that you cannot find your exact doll as you can easily see that 99% of this brand doll is a slow seller and rarely sells for even $25.
Compare the number of this brand doll listed on eBay against the number sold and you can easily see it is a small percentage (eBay is considered the largest doll selling site in the world).

You can always list your doll at a higher price because someone may be looking for a similar doll and purchase yours.
Just be sure you do research so you know how to list a doll and not lose money.
If your doll does not sell at a listed price, you can always lower the price to maybe attract more people. (Shipping is a very big nightmare when shipping a breakable item.)

Red haired dolls are unusual and in the past, they traditionally held a little higher value than any other hair color in the resale world. Blonde dolls lost their value first, followed by brunette, and now the red haired gals are feeling that pain.

What I am seeing has happened is that that lady with the Netflix show that is telling people about downsizing has put more dolls (of all hair colors) on the market and that has driven prices down for all dolls.

A family member was at a thrift shop just last week and said there were over 50 dolls for sale all marked for a few bucks each. SO SAD!

Where you may try to market your gal to improve the chance of her selling is to target a group for red heads...now I don't know if they all allow selling, if you put the phrase "Red Headed" or "Red Head" into Facebook you will come up with some groups, and Instagram has a bunch of hashtags (#) related to red headed folks also. The Insta search would be #redhead etc.

Selling on Instagram is cumbersome, so you may want to put her on eBay and then post her picture on Insta and tell people to search out your user name to buy her.

Just a few random thoughts!! Post back with an update!
