Going To A Thrift Store

I bought these two Barbies the other day at a thrift store. The blonde has the Superstar face with Philippines and the date 1966 on her back.  Barbies were manufactured in the philipines from 1978 to 1988, which places  her age as sometime between these dates.  The other Barbie has 1966 Hong Kong on her back. The Barbies were manufactured in Hong Kong from 1970 until 1987 which places her age as sometime between these dates.  
The 1966 date is the copy right date of the bodies.  Mattel has used this body on most of the Barbie and family of dolls and that is why so many have this date, but it has nothing to do with the age of the doll.  The darker haired doll I do not know who she is.  If you recognize her, please let me know who she is.
