Offered is a full-size hissing cork Brant in all original paint and condition by Rick Stephens. The decoy is 21 inches long and has "Rick Stephens - Newark, Delaware - 1985" scored into the bottom (photo 8). Nicely carved one piece outstretched wood head in hissing posture made famous by Nathan Cobb, Jr. Decoy has a one inch thick wood bottom board, original wood keel, and wood tail insert for added durability. There is some separation of the bottom board from the cork body on one side but is very stable (please see photo 4).
It may have been made that way. Overall, a really nice Mid-Atlantic decoy with very light wear.
A larger box will have to be used for this decoy because of the outstretched neck. I switched out the photos was some better lighted images and lowered the price. This item is in the category "Sporting Goods\Hunting\Vintage Hunting\Duck Decoys". The seller is "huachucas" and is located in this country: US. This item can be shipped to United States.
