Elephant

The Elephant was introduced in about 1956 with no mold mark, with the "U.S.A." mold mark added some time in the early 1970s. The mold was sculpted by Chris Hess and is Breyer mold #91.

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.
