    <DIV>This is my first post here. What a great site!</DIV> <DIV>&nbsp;</DIV> <DIV>I mada a buy at an auction the other&nbsp;day! The question is, what did I get? <IMG class=inlineimg title=Confused alt="" src="http://refugeforums.com/ubb/confused.gif" border=0> There are 3 dozen decoys with all but 3 in "good" shape. They have a wierd keel design. the metal keel slides up into the body.One of them has a "McKee Decoy Midland Mich" on the bottom. All the others have a Pat. #. They all have glass eyes. There are 4 cans and the rest Bluebills. HELP! Any ideas as to worth or any thing about them. I am curious as to when and how long they were made. The patent is&nbsp;from the 1960's I have several pics, be patient. Thanks for any info or opinions!</DIV> <DIV>&nbsp;</DIV> <DIV>a special thanks to Riverwalkwer from the Fuge!</DIV>

    <P>what would you want for them&nbsp; -&nbsp; they might be old and if you collect decoys, you will find out their worth sooner or later&nbsp; -&nbsp; to me, they were made for gunning&nbsp; -&nbsp; put them to use and take care of them&nbsp; -&nbsp; or sell them</P>
