These dolls were sold as souvenir dolls and the market is flooded with all versions of this doll.
I did not see an Apache Chief and I did not see very many sold dolls and most sold for under $12.

www.ebay.com/.../i.html?_from=R40&_nkw=carlson+indian...

eBay history of these dolls shows the average doll like this stays listed for sale/unsold for an average of 18 months and most will never sell and will be removed by sellers.

You could list your doll at $25 + $3 shipping and if not sold after a few weeks just lower the price and wait again.
Be sure to put Apache Chief (Number is unimportant) Carlson Dolls, Tag, Not a Toy, size/measurement, description.

You will need several good pictures also.
List on Facebook Marketplace, offerup, letgo, etc.

Here is a little history on the dolls: historicaldolls.blogspot.com/.../carlson-costume-dolls-surprisingly...

Sadly they have not held their value and most sit unsold.

If it was mine, I would start at 15.99 and take best offer, which may be as low as $2-3.

Thanks for sharing!

I have this Goldenvale Native American doll that is in a hammock. It has a brown eye and a green eye. Did they all come that way or is this a factory mistake?

Can you post a photo? I am thinking it is a bad repair job and not a factory mistake. I sold lots of these when I worked retail and mistakes like that never hit the floor. From what we learned, if there was a rare mistake, they were destroyed immediately. Sadly even if it was a factory mistake that didn't get destroyed, it would not increase the value. There are just too many dolls on the market and odd one would not be sought after like mistakes in coins or stamps.

Where you might see value is when you find them with red or pink or purple eyes. What that is what happens when the cheap materials they used in the eyes reacted to air and sun and "turned" weird colors. Sometimes just one eye turns the wonky color.

Around Halloween people sell those on ebay claiming they are haunted. Sometimes sell for way more than they are worth if they had normal colors. Crazy huh!!
