    I sent ya a pm about the molds. the #3 is a std diver body, #8 is std diver head and #27 is the magnum puddle duck body a very low profile body that is not real popular and thus an uncommon mold as they werent very popular due to the low profile.

    That is the Utility head for the small 410 series body. Used for wigeon, Teal, etc.
    The number one I dont believe is correct for that head. It should be Number 4. The body is number one. in the catalog.

    Tony,
    Below is the mold in question. In the picture of three heads are: top - #1, bottom left - blue bill (not sure on the number on the mold maybe #8), bottom right - mallard (again not sure on the number on the mold maybe #2). Now I don't know if what I have is of an early mold as it does not have the nice text that I have seen on other Decoys Unlimited molds.

    AKA Quackshot,
    That's awesome! I've never seen any print material of these so now I know what to look for. My neighbor has a bunch of molds and this will help. Thank you so much for sharing.

    Is there a "Ringneck" head mold available anywhere, that would properly fit my Decoys Unlimited suc-duk mold
    body ?

    OK----I may have to look into them.
    Thank you
    Do you ever get ahold of a Decoys Unlimited suc-duk style diver mold?
    I've got a friend that wants to buy one.

    The best thing that I can recommend is to look at ebay. You will see different molds pop up from time to time.
    Good Luck
