Misty

 

The Misty mold is a portrait model of the horse made famous in Marguerite Henry's book Misty of Chincoteague. The mold has both the round "Breyer Molding Co." and "U.S.A." mold stamps, and occasionally the "B" stamp as well. First introduced in 1972, she has been in production ever since. Misty was sculpted by Chris Hess and is Breyer mold #20.

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.
