Those are two of the best calls ever made, Ive a 66 that's about 35 years old. I also have a 77 but changed to a Sean Mann flute several year s ago. BTW those should be Walnut and Ive never seen them in any other wood, Its seems the duck call gets better as it ages. You can still find NOS on ebay for around 40 bucks each
If you're there for the limit, you're there for the wrong reason

Thanks for confirming my theory. Have heard old-timers reminiscing about the model 66.
It sounds fantastic! The goose call is easy and breaks quite nicely.
I saw a boxed set for $150 so they aint that special except to me.
My dad's calls. He couldn't call a taxi but he sure saved some nice things.

When you wrote Historic, I thought it was some lipped by MLK or Abe Lincoln.
My lab died, and no one on Duckhuntingchat even cared.
