Default Paul Kingyon Duck Call For Sale

I am selling this call for my hunting partner.



As you can see from pic #1, the call is a cocobola double reed from approximately the early to mid-90’s. The call has been hunted and there are a number of small chips in the varnish from the call hitting other calls on the lanyard as you can see from the pics. I wouldn’t say there is anything major but the finish is not perfect. The signature is quite strong as you can see from pics #1 and #2.





The insert fits snuggly in the barrel and there is very little wear to the insert from pushing it into the barrel as you can see from pics #2 and #3. As you can also see from those pics, the guts are in great shape. The glue is complete and hasn’t separated from the wood so the assembly is tight. The call still sounds like new. So, overall, the call displays well and sounds terrific. However, in fairness, if you look closely, there is some minor damage to the edge of the call at the very end of the insert which I have tried to show in pic #4.



The end of the insert looks like it probably knocked against another call on a lanyard. There is a small dent in the end of the insert and a small split running lengthwise in the flared or beaded enlargement in the end of the insert which is fairly shallow....certainly not as deep as the bead or flare on the end of the insert. The lengthwise split has opened slightly so you can feel it much more easily than you can see it. Under close examination with a magnifying glass, the small lengthwise split actually forms almost a “D” shape. If you can picture a “D”, the straight portion would be the lengthwise split which has opened slightly and the curved portion would be a very faint, tight line running in an arc from one end of the lengthwise split to the other. Looking at pic # 4 there is some dark grain running horizontally across the very end of the insert near the top edge of the insert as pictured. Between the dark grain in the very end of the insert and the top edge of the insert as pictured there is a lighter grain in the very end of the insert. In the lighter grain there is a goldish mark in the very end of the insert near the top edge as pictured where the insert has been hit. The split appears as a goldish line in the edge of the insert running lengthwise from that goldish mark and is quite shallow. It doesn’t appear that the split will ever run deeper into the insert since the split runs with the grain and the grain is horizontal across the flared or beaded portion of the edge where the split is. It might one day chip in that spot but it didn't chip from the initial blow and has been stable for some time now.

Please note that the line running from the lanyard groove to the end of the insert near the middle of the insert in pic #4 is just a reflection.



$200. OBO including shipping to Canada or the US.
