    <FONT face=Arial> <P>Does anyone know anything about an old OLT call. It's black molded plastic, maybe bakelite. I haven't been able to find any information to identify it. </P> <P>Stamped in the barrel is: </P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">P.S. Olt</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">Pekin, Ill</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">Registered Trademark</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">No. 348205</P> <P>Molded in the end of the bell is: 33</P> <P>It has a strange reed/mouthpiece setup.</P> <P>It belonged to my Dad. I suspect it is '50's or '60's vintage, could be older. If it's a duck call it sounds terrible. It sounds more like a crow. Any info is appreciated.</P> <P>Thanks</P></FONT>

    Try asking the guys at http://www.djcalls.com/&nbsp; The one gentleman that works there worked for the Olt Company for over twenty years and now works for them. If you send him a picture he can give you information on the call and about what it's worth. Hope that helps some. <img src="http://www.websitetoolbox.com/images/boards/smilies/biggrin.gif" align="middle" border="0"><br>
