Ponylope Plastic Horses & More

Beton World War I

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 are taken from Richard O'Brien's Collecting American-Made Toy Soldiers, Edition No. 3, 1997, except for PT and RP numbers, which Ponylope created based on Beton numbers. 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. BETON / MADE IN U.S.A. logo on rectangular bases unless noted. 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.
