Legionario III

The Legionario III (or Legionario) mold was introduced in 1979 and is the portrait model of the champion Andalusian stallion Legionario III performing the high-stepping Spanish Walk. The mold has the round "Breyer Molding Co." mold stamp, with some early models also having the "B" stamp. The mold has a brand - an H with a small c in the crossbar - molded onto the near thigh which mirrors the brand of the actual Legionario III. Unless traced in a contrasting color it is very difficult to see this brand. This mold was sculpted by Chris Hess and is Breyer mold #68.

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.
