Dad having had a couple little strokes and slowing down, mom saw the opportunity to get the garage cleared out. I came across these. Dad says he got em when he was about five.

I might be a buyer with good pics. PM me if you need contact info. The pics you posted above don't show up because they are hosted on Photobucket.

Yes?

Kingston, I don't know if these are salable. Let me know what you think when you see them. Thanks.

The pictures are all showing up now.

I'd be interested, but have no idea what they're worth. They'd look pretty cool in relief frames on my wall.

Wow...they are something!

Disposable decoys.

Youd think there probably arent too many of those that survived, so may be worth something.

I thought they were cool as hell.

Dad's noncommittal on selling but I'll keep you in mind if he decides to let go, Kingston. No clue how figure a price. There's about a half-dozen of them in the "box"--two hens, the rest drakes. Seem in pretty good shape for how old they are. I might have to fold one up just for kicks.

I would keep them, assemble them and put em' on the top of a book shelf. Neat stuff.

That is sure a tighter pack up than when I carry a dozen mallards to the field.
