Hello, I'm not really a decoy collector. Although I have a few vintage ones, I'm not very educated about collectible decoys. My fiancee is always bringing home various decoys from thrift shops etc. Everything from old plastic and paper ones to a few decent wood ones now and again. Mostly junk. She gave me this one for Christmas. It's obviously not a worker, and it has a huge split in it, which is fine but kind of unfortunate. I really like the way the head is carved, the shape of it. So I will put it on a shelf. Anyway, as you can see in the pics it has a brand Y.U.P LTD on it. Also, it's signed "Made in Ilchester? Maryland", Bufflehead Drake #13, the year 1989, and a name which I can't read. Possibly Richard something. I just thought it was interesting and was wondering if anyone could shed some light on it.
