Corkman. I used to collect old decoys, but now just collect perfect art. Here is a couple of items form Bob White of the Chesapeeke region.





This is a call made by James Dester. Now one of the formost call makers in the country. He made this call for me and gave it as a gift for little things I had done for him.



As a collectible call it ios priceless. If you look at the top of the bbl section yu can see where he carved my name.

Corkman. Thsnks. I have collected for about 25 years. When I started the "golden days" of collecting were over. But today, most consider my early collecting the golden era. My collection of eclectic decoys has been psssed along to buyers and family and been replaced with what I term as "perfect paint" collection. If I get osm etime I'll post some other stuff I have.

Good luck

The avoe website is the call maker that made the call above. I own a couple of the calls shown on his website. (I think). Mine are stashed away. (It's a wifey thing, ya know?)

Send me a PM with your e-mail address. I have some decoys I would like to sell from my collection and will send some pictures.

I have some old cork body decoys,wood decoys by Decoys Unlimited, Erie, PA, Armstrong featherlite, and some other wood decoys that may be of interest.

I have three ( fiber bodied decoys) two hens and a mallard i beleive they are JC Higgins interested ? Let me know and will figure out what they are worth. My guess is that these deks are at least 60 years old I've had them for 30 and they hang on the wall.
