Silky Sullivan, Mahogany Bay - 1998
The Maureen Love Silky Sullivan, originally created for Hagen-Renaker, was licensed by Breyer in 1976. He was given this mahogany bay color for two releases: As #5650 with the Saddle Club Collection from 1995-1997, and as #5651 in the six-piece Stablemates Collection in 1998. The two releases appear identical, and our consignor had one of each. Per her notes, this one is the 1998 version.
This fellow is in Excellent condition with an eartip and tiny nostril rub, plus a tiny light rub on his right barrel that doesn't go all the way through the paint. He features a masked stripe and satin finish. His photos have been sent to IDYB to become the reference for this release, so he'll also be sort-of famous!
