The Buffalo was introduced in 1965 with the round "Breyer Molding Co." mold stamp, with later models having the "U.S.A." mold stamp and some the "B" stamp as well. The mold was sculpted by Chris Hess and is Breyer mold #76.

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.
