Vintage Hard to Find Fred Hoppe of Peoria Illinois mallard hen duck decoy. 15 and 3/8 the inches long and weighs 1 lb 9.2 ounces including attached weight.
He used two eye screw line ties rather than one and a screw. Hollow body with a rattle. Very racy sleek body style with chunky bill. One eye set lower and deeper than other. Most likely old hunter restoration/paint.A must have for the illinois river style collector.
