From my personal collection of McLoughlin decoys. This decoy was carved by John in 1960's. I have never been able to find any supporting evidence on this. I've been collecting John's birds for over 35 years. I have handled hundreds of Johns birds over the years, and this has the most outstanding paint details I've ever seen.His birds that he did for competition were the best of his carving and painting hands down. I acquired this directly from another west coast carver, who was a personal friend of John's. Condition: Excellent condition for the age.
Keel was removed prior to my purchasing the decoy over 25 years ago.
