    Guys I need some help with the value of a restle decoy I found in a barn. It is an Mallard wih a wooden keel on it. It is pretty badly sun faded and the keel has some damage to it. But all it says on the bottom is "Tom Restle And Restle Decoys," it also says" AUMEE" on it but the M is missimg. It doesnt appear to be worn off it just looks like the m was not stamped in. Any help would be appreciated and thanks in anvance.

    <P style="MARGIN: 0px">The decoy is going to be worth whatever someone is willing to pay for it.<IMG src="http://www.websitetoolbox.com/images/boards/smilies/wink.gif" align=absMiddle border=0>&nbsp; As with most decoys, it all depends on how badly someone wants it.&nbsp; That said, you aren't going to retire from the proceeds, if that's what you are looking for.... most of the Restles that I have seen are going for about $150-$225/dz, depending on the shape of the decoy and the age of the decoy.</P>
