Semi-Rearing Mustang

(c) Janice Cox    (c) Janice Cox

The Semi-Rearing Mustang (or Mustang) mold was introduced in 1961 with the round "Breyer Molding Co." mold stamp, with later (post 1970) models adding the "U.S.A." stamp. Many early models also had the tip of the the near front hoof cut flat, probably to help stabilize the model. The model was sculpted by Chris Hess and is Breyer mold #87.

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.
