    In all my years of collecting Restle Decoys I have never seen a Restle Decoy BRANDED in this manner ? Anybody ever seen this before ? I am thinking probably one of the first runs before "TOM RESTLE DECOYS" where imbedded in mold at the bottom ? OR from his personal rig ?

    Any input helpful ! Thanks !

    Capt. Mark, regrettably I believe that is a Tony Homer counterfeit, mass produced around Grand Lake St. Mary along with hundreds of bufflehead blocks. Sorry! :stirthepot:
