Quarter Horse Yearling, Liver Chestnut - Semigloss
This is one of the three original colors for this mold, and 25 models in this color were used as prizes in Breyer's "Name The Yearling" contest in 1970. First prize was a real live Quarter Horse yearling! Second and Third got tack sets, while 25 Fourth Place winners got one of these lovely models. Liver chestnut has been discontinued since 1980.
This filly is in Excellent condition with a few tiny body rubs, a tiny nostril rub, and ear edge rubs, all of which someone touched up with… a pink marker? I don't know - I’d say she's had an interesting life so far! She shows mild yellowing, which you may be able to correct with a few days of sunbathing. She's a very interesting variation, in that she wears a semigloss finish. There are some known to have been made in semi-gloss, but they're far and few between. We looked her over well to see if there was any indication that it might be aftermarket - I am as certain as possible that it's factory! There are no edges, no pooling or drip marks, and it blends toward matte under her belly, and on her legs and face as many older semigloss models do. It looks lovely on her, bringing out her highlights and early textured coat. No USA mark.
