Bufflehead pair by Ira Hudson (1873-1949) Chincoteague, Va.Circa. 1930's. This rare species is in worn condition but is a matched rigmate pair. There may be nicer Hudson football bodied Bufflehead examples in collections but, would be very hard to find a matched pair. This pair has fluted tails and rusty tack eyes. Appears to have some old working paint but again, how many matched rigmate Bufflehead pairs have been available in the past 10 years? A fine addition to a Virginia or Bufflehead decoy collection. $3,000.
