    Default GDG Resident Old School duck decoy expert GDG

    A while back I mentioned my sister found some old duck decoys in the attic of the house she just bought. She and my father found about 25 of them, many damaged so they were thrown away (before I could even see them). These were salvaged as the best along with some, what I would assume, lead sinkers. I just think they are pretty cool to have an not interested in selling them but was looking for any kind of input someone might have as to the origin of them. I'd appreciate your thoughts on these!!













    Thanks in advance!!!

    Just a shot in the dark here...

    But the bluebills look like some old school carrylites. A fried of mine has a carrylites from back in the day that use to be his old man's. His is a goldeneye, but it has the same look/build/material that those bluebills seem to have. I'm probably off by a long shot.
