Hover over image for more detail. Click to magnify.

Exceptionally rare example in virtually untouched condition (replaced weight, some darkening of paint on top of head). No cracks. Some shot with one across the bottom of the bill.

Most Mason's are common mergansers. First one I have seen in this form.

17 1/2" long.
