For sale is a Traditional Scale Breyer #1493 Sergeant Reckless. This model was created as a tribute to a brave little mare whose role in the American military during the Korean war earned her recognition as a national hero and the rank of sergeant. She is portrayed as a chestnut with a decorated blanket on the Galiceño mold. Breyer considers her to be Traditional in scale but she is pony sized and stands about 8 inches tall. She comes complete with a replica of her military issued blanket.
This Breyer #1493 Sergeant Reckless is a Limited Edition Reissue with only 5,000 pieces being produced. When she's gone, she's gone! She comes with 6 tradeable Collector's Cards. Her blanket differs from the original release.
During a time where female roles in the American military were limited, one rose in ranks and became a national hero. Named “Reckless” by the Marines fighting in the Korean War, a little Mongolian mare began her military career as a simple pack horse, and ended with the rank of Sergeant!
Reckless held a very important job during the war – carrying heavy ammunition to the Marines at the front lines. At the Battle of Outpost Vegas in March 1953, Reckless carried almost five tons of ammunition over the course of a few days through “no man’s land” to the front lines, and also carried wounded soldiers to safety!
This unstoppable mare was loved by her Marines and helped boost the morale of her Division. The honors this brave made received include: two Purple Hearts, a Presidential Unit Citation with star, Good Conduct Medal, United Nations Service Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Korean Service Medal, Navy Unit Commendation, and Republic of Korea Presidential Unit Citation. Reckless was retired to Camp Pendleton in California, where she received her final promotion to staff Sergeant in 1959.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each Breyer Sgt. Reckless will be donated to the Sgt. Reckless Memorial Fund to help support efforts to create a permanent memorial in honor of her efforts.

I operate 2 separate store locations: 1 store in California and 1 store in New Jersey. I can automatically combine shipping for items shipping from my California location only. Additionally, discounted combined shipping is only available if your order is combined before payment is made.
Please note that I ship using USPS Priority Mail (the exception being oversized packages). The standard transit time is 2 - 3 days, includes $100 insurance and is fully trackable. Please be aware that shipping weight is rated by the pound, 1 pound + 1 ounce ships at a rate of 2 pounds. I make every effort to keep the shipping weight down but I will not pack poorly simply to save money and risk damage to the horse(s). If multiple purchases are combined, packages may ship Parcel Post. This is because of the hefty dimensional size surcharge placed on Priority Packages.
I pack safely and ship within 24 business hours.
Express and International shipping is available. I am sorry to say that the cost of International shipping has increased greatly. For example, the cost of sending 1 Breyer horse to the UK via USPS First Class Mail costs approximately $25. This is the very cheapest option that I have found. Additionally, USPS First Class Mail is no longer rated by the ounce but is rounded up to the next pound.
International Buyers Please Note:
Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility.
Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to offerding or buying.
I describe every listing to the best of my ability but I am not perfect. Please examine the pictures closely and ask questions. Items are sold with a money back guarantee but you must notify me of your intent to return within 48 hours of receipt of the merchandise. Items must be received back in the same condition as I shipped them in. If damage should occur during shipping please notify me immediately and I will assist you in filing an insurance claim where applicable.Contact Us
