    I am just waiting for my American cousins to visit me from California for the weekend. I decided to look for a site about Charlie McCarthy dolls and I found yours. Mine has the stamp on the back and he is wearing a check brown check suit, I also have a detective type coat. I know I had the dinner suit but over the years that’s got lost. Oh, and I have a pair of pyjamas, blue with a red collar. I have just seen how much this little guy is worth.
