    Does anyone know when the year or years when Herters produced the 473 Call.

    Funny you ask this, I just happen to be looking at a 1957-58 Herter's catalog, which is the oldest one I have. Those #473 calls are Ca#473 and cost $1.80 back then.:yes:l:l:tu

    Oh, Thanks, the call was from my late Father. I heard it's worth $35.00 now? Priceless to me.

    I have one brand new in the box. My Dad and I both used them back in the day. Heck, they sound pretty good! Going through the Herters catalog page by page was like the internet of the 60s for a little kid. Dang I wish I had saved a couple of those old catalogs.

    Bet my Dad had a catalog for sure to get that call, I remember him reloading Peter's Poppers, haha, I like the 473 Herters, don't take it out hunting though, afraid to lose it!!

    I have a copy of my granddads I remember flipping through as a kid. I'm very glad I kept it.
