This bird has seen some field use and has a few imperfections but is generally in good shape. The neck crack was professionally repaired with a minimum ofr touch-up.I would call the paint pattern a composite, designed to attract all species of mergansers. The photos show all the wear points. The glass eyes and leather anchor loop are original, with an inletted pad weight fastened by 4 screws. A nice example of NJ's lesser-known carvers.
