This decoy was handed down through the family to a friend of mine. His Great-Grandfather was William Beebe, a well noted explorer, biologist, ornithologist, hunter, etc. who lived from 1877-1962 and worked as a worldwide explorer for the New York Zoological Society among others. It was given as an anniversary gift to his parents in 1970, unaltered from its source, despite wear. Detailed information about William Beebe can be found at http://en.wikepedia.org/wiki/William_Beebe (William Beebe on Wikipedia.) or https://sites.com/site/cwilliambeebe/ (Google: "The Official William Beebe Site-Google Sites.) Any additional thoughts or information would be much appreciated. Thanks.
It appears to be manufactured by one of the 3 or 4 factories in Mississippi. My guess, early to mid fifties.
Thanks for the tip. I assume it is not of much value except personal. What do you think?
30-50 bucks, tops.
Whup is right. It's a MS decoy. Hudson or most likely a PADCO (later Victor). It is not a Grubbs (neck is to thick). And given that it's a repainted mallard (mallards are most common) I'd value it in the $20-$40 range.
