The Rare No-Bangs Francie® (1971)
was sold as a blonde
and brunette

Blond No-Bangs Francie®

The blonde and brunette No-Bangs Francies wear orange 'stretchy headbands' and have an extra tuft of hair in the back to give their hair style height.

According to Marcie Melillo, The body markings are:

c1966/Mattel, Inc./U.S. Patented/U.S. Pat. Pend/Made In/Japan

But DON'T go by body or head markings since the same markings were used on all of the Francies!
Therefore the markings are irrelevant in this case.
Please go by the head/hair itself (not even the headband color since this can easily be switched)
