Notes: This piece does not appear in the Mold Book. On the Spring 1975 order form, a drawing of this piece was substituted for A-276a Lamb, facing left, and presumably this is when production started. At some time in the late 1970s or 80s, production reverted to the original mold, but the drawing has never been changed. This mold is distinguished by collectors as A-276b.
