Has a cracked neck and some gunshot wounds but has obviously been loved and used. Solid body and in general is good condition with wear that includes missing paint around the bill, damage to the weight/pull from use, and general wear to the paint/body that includes marks/scuffs (see pictures). Still a great addition to a collection!
It's a tall order, considering what's happened in the nearly 70 years since Mitchell started carving fake waterfowl for gunners on the Susquehanna Flats. But when Mitchell died Jan. 14 at 91, the soaring values of the 100,000-odd birds he carved over a long, productive career had little to do with how he was remembered among friends.People around here collected Mr. Mitchell's decoys because they liked him.
He was a gentleman and his work reflected his personality. "Through his lifetime, " said fellow carver Jimmy Pierce, who learned his trade at Mitchell's knee, from when he started at 23 to when his eyesight finally gave out in 1985, he probably made the most durable, high-quality decoy around.
