Notes: The numbers A-493 and A-494 were reversed in Charlton. Although this is known as “Panda with white chest,” there is a black-chest variation.

The heads were attached with elastic bands, which have inevitably become stretched out or even broken over time. Mold B-103 was later used for A-878, “Ski Bear ‘Sitzmark.’”
