PSQ - Photo Show Quality, like LSQ, the opinion varies, models are more or less flawed, but such flaws are either small enough to be invisible in a photo, or can be hidden through skillful positioning.

RR - Regular Run, models found in the regular catalogue. Usually no restriction on numbers produced

SR - Special Run, models sold exclusively through certain retailers or directly from Breyer. Usually limited numbers are produced.

SM - Stablemate, the second smallest Breyer scale. Before the introduction of Mini Whinnies it was the smallest scale.
