Moose

(c) BreyerCollectables.com  

The Moose was introduced in 1966 with the the round "Breyer Molding Co." mold mark. Later models also have the "U.S.A." mold stamp, and some of these may have the "B" stamp as well.  The mold was sculpted by Chris Hess and is Breyer mold #79.

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.
