BreyerFest Special Run
#711198 Stablemate Keychain
This outstanding special run is a little different from the other Saddlebreds produced during this time - this run was produced with old plastic rather than new! Unlike some of the previous keychain collections, which were produced in the New Jersey factory, the 1997 & 1998 SRs were made in China.
Some collectors prefer to remove the keychain from their models as this makes them a bit easier to display in a conga and less tipsy in general. I don't want to risk damaging my models or losing the keychain, so I just leave the hardware in its factory original state.
