Classic Molds

The first molds in the Classic series (1:12 scale), the Bucking Bronco and the Rearing Stallion, appeared during the 1960s. It wasn't until several years later in 1973 that Breyer first officially designated molds to be of the Classic series with the introduction of the Arabian Stallion, Mare, and Foal. The Classic series remains the second most popular of Breyer's four main series after the Traditional. While I have been a collector since the early 1970s, my knowledge of the details and variations on many early models is sparse, and I am deeply grateful to Nancy Atkinson Young and her excellent book, Breyer Molds and Models: Horses, Riders, & Animals, Revised Fifth Edition.
