While we did order a couple of Anniversary Addy dolls in order to have multiples to choose from, we hadn't planned on ending up with quite this many. Due to a shipping mess up, we ended up with six of them! Here they are in their boxes and PC Addy saying 'hello':

1995 PC Addy vs. 35th Anniversary Addy
It's always difficult to get accurate photos of vinyl tones, but here are multiple shots of the two dolls that will, hopefully, show the difference.
PC Addy has the old "light brown" eye color (same as the original AGOT #18 dolls), while Anniversary Addy has the current dark brown pinwheel eyes.
[Note: This photo makes Anniversary Addy's face look very round, but it's definitely on the thin side. In fact, all six of the Anniversary dolls we have here are very thin-faced dolls.]
Comparing Meet Outfits
The laces on PC Addy's boots are about half-again as long as the new ones, and the lace wholes have grommets rather than the new embroidered holes of the Anniversary edition. For design and solde differences, I think the photos do a pretty good job.
The new boots are quite a bit shorter than the old Pleasant Company boots. I was able to put the new ones onto PC Addy's foot with the knee sock on, but it only just managed to fit.
Vinyl Skin Tone Comparisons
Another small note here -- we have two Beforever Addy dolls, and their eye sockets are definitely smaller than the sockets on Anniversary Addy or TM #85.
