Recast Albertas have a different stringing system. S/L drilled these two big holes here so they didn't have to go through the pain in the ass process of using the tiny holes in the legit body. These two big holes are clear indicators of recast status.
Recast Albertas have the exact same mold markings as legits (I couldn't get a good picture of this, but if you compare the insides of the legit and recast dolls, they have the same weird spots inside, presumably from the mold).
Recast Albertas come with gold o-rings in the feet, where my legit had silver. Since these can be replaced, do not rely on the metal as indicator of recast status.
|Hard to see in this pic, but the feet are the same size.|
I can say that I will only order legit DC dolls in the future. They included the belly piece for free, everything was well packed, and the quality of the doll is great, especially for the low prices.
