Sales list. All photos show the actual items for sale, and most are priced as groups matched according to the color of the figures and/or bases. Where individual figures are for sale, this is clearly indicated. ID numbers (if included) are taken from Richard O'Brien's Collecting American-Made Toy Soldiers, Edition No. 3, 1997. Both paint condition and color variations vary widely in Beton toys, and every attempt has been made to provide accurate color photos (and verbal descriptions, where needed). Mild paint loss and imperfections are common, but there are no breaks, splits, cracks, chips, repairs, significant paint wear, or deterioration of the plastic unless noted. All items are in hard plastic unless stated otherwise. If you would like to see another view of any figure or group, Ponylope can e-mail photos on request — just ask! Free shipping on all orders of $75 or more.
FULL CAST LOGO PARTIAL CAST LOGO
Unless stated otherwise: Most WWII figures with integral cast bases have a three-part impressed logo with a copyright symbol and an intertwined B and T flanking a center section marked BERGEN TOY & NOVELTY CO. /

in a separate indented circle. The green-colored plastic is nearly, but not exactly, the same.
