Important Duck Call Charles H. Perdew (1874-1963) Henry, IL, c. 1935 6 in. tall
A fancy-grade custom duck call with three flying mallards and hunter's initials "EJK" carved around it. Included is the original box along with a spare reed that also carries the "EJK" designation.
This call is very closely related to one of the Perdew calls sold as a pair by this firm in 2012 for $18,400, which featured nearly identical flying mallards and a green Bakelite mouth piece. Original paint and finish with minimal wear.
