    The maker of this decoy is Herters of Waseca,MN thier out of business now This is a coot decoy, body made from balsa wood, the head is probably pine or cedar. Made around the 1950's Any questions,reply to this thread. Dick

    Dick is probably correct. But it was common back in theday where a hunter used a factory duck as a model to copy.

    I would second the vote for Herters. You may want to give Doug an
    e-mail with a picture of the decoy. Doug is Minnesota Decoy Collectors
    Association and will be gald to help you.

    Herters Model Perfect! Almost everything they sold was "Model Perfect"! Actually, my hunting buddys and I bought a lot of stuff from Herters. Most of it was pretty good and some not so good. Come to think of it, sort of like today.

    With that balsa wood body it's Herters. You can faintly see the duplicator cutter lines just above the white spot on the back.
