    I was going through some old supplies and found two artificial waterfowl heads with no markings as to specie, or manufacture..one is marked on top of the casting withe the number 70 and the other is marked 76. I have looked in all my catalogs and can not match those numbers to anything they could be..any help would be appreciated, and if I can I.D. them I will mark them accordingly for future use...thanks in advance.

    I will try to figure out picture posting, in the meantime, both look to be of the same manufacture due to the numbers on top of skull, one is standard resin tanish white but the other is black..possibly might help to establish the brand..Thanks

    the item numbers in vandykes tony F series would make them a greenwing female and a widgeon female, which they definitely are not..I am thinking the # 70 looks like it could be Harlequin. the other is similier but extends further back at the mouth opening, almost woodduck, but too thin at top where it meets the skin

    Not sure if you found them yet, but my catalog show # 70 as a Bufflehead drake and # 76 a Harli drake. Hope that helps?

    If they are mine a 70 is Drake Bufflehead and 76 is a Drake Harlequin
