Touch of Class

   

The Touch of Class mold was introduced in 1986 and is a portrait model of Olympic gold medal winning Thoroughbred mare Touch of Class (1973-2001).  The mold has "Š 1985" engraved inside the near gaskin. All Touch of Class models made since then have this date, regardless of when they were actually released. Touch of Class was sculpted by Chris Hess and is Breyer mold #420.

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.
