The "Old Mold" Proud Arabian Mare (PAM), which has no mold marks, was made by Breyer until 1959. Breyer stopped producing it at that time due to similarities to a mold made by Hagen-Renaker. When the mold was reintroduced in 1971 after negotiations with Hagen-Renaker there were minor modifications, including a splayed front left leg and the addition of the round "Breyer Molding Co." and "U.S.A." mold stamps. Breyer has again lost the rights to make both the PAM and the Proud Arabian Foal, along with the original Classic racehorses and the G-1 Stablemates, all of which were originally Hagen-Renaker molds sculpted by Maureen Love. Unless a new agreement is made these molds will not be used again by Breyer for anything but very limited special runs. See also the In-Between Mare. Update: Breyer is issuing a 500 piece run of the PAM through their 2015 Vintage Club, which may signify a new contract for the use of this popular model. The Proud Arabian Mare is Breyer mold #215.
