This mold has a molded on horseshoes, a "© Breyer Reeves" linear stamp inside the right leg, a "96" engraving on the inside the left thigh, a tiny, upside down "JEH" stamp on the left hock, and a tiny "By Moody" under the mane on the right side of the horse's neck. The "JEH" stamp refers to John E. Harrold, who made the metal-injection mold used. Big Ben was sculpted by Kathleen Moody (hence the "By Moody") and is Breyer's mold #483.

A symbol means that I don't yet have a picture of that model. If you can help, please see the Help Wanted section. Clicking on any photo below will open a larger version of that picture.
