William Fred Harlow, Newark, Ohio
This call is stamped "MFD BY, FRED HARLOW, NEWARK, OHIO" on the finished walnut barrel. It has a characteristic and proper oil finished stopper. This call appears to be an all original metal reed duck call by one-half of the famous Kinney and Harlow team. Originally came from the stock of an old gun shop in Illinois. This is a rare opportunity to acquire a mint example of this call. Only a handfull of these calls is known to exist. Reference: Duck Calls and Other Game Calls, Brian J.
