Here is a picture of the "new" goose. At one time was sold in a Schmidt and Guyette auction. The old bird I pictured earlier, sure does look like a Mitchell, now that I can compare it to an original.

The stand I made for displaying the Goose features Winchester #4 copper paper shells as stanchions for the goose.

JJ - There's a lot of things I'm not, and decoy expert is one of them. The auction description called it Mitchell, so that's what I'm calling it, but the description may have been wrong. Regardless, I like it

If I remember correctly Jobes apprenticed and worked for Mitchell and then he left to open his own shop making decoys like Mitchell's style. Original Mitchell are valued more than Jobes.
