Early models of the Man O' War mold have only the round "Breyer Molding Co." stamp, while later models have the "U.S.A." mold stamp as well. Some models have the "B" stamp as well. He was sculpted by Chris Hess and is Breyer mold #47.

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.
