Old foamer decoys

Postby Tattooedduckhunter » Sat Apr 26, 2014 2:31 pm

I have a bunch of old foamers not 100% sure who made them thinking the goose decoys I have at herters, the canvasbacks look a little different than herters so I wasn't sure, Any ideas on who made them and what they are worth?

The bottom pic is an old Herters for sure..........the above duck decoys I can't be positive, but I think they are Herters also. I've got several dozen of the goose decoys that I bought in the early to middle 70's for $29.00/ doz at the old Olympia outlet store for the Herters Co. Over time, the galvanized screw eye that attaches the head to the body rusts out and fails.........some of the screw eyes in my rig have been replaced twice!!!! The main body will take a lot of abuse, the heads are hollow and made of thinner hard plastic,............they aren't near as tough as the main bodies. Swatting crips can be hard on them if your not careful.

Thanks for the info,I believe the bluebills are herters 63 decoys, a few of the canvasbacks I'm unsure about I'm almost positive they aren't herters but I could be wrong,
