Paul Gibson (1902-1984) was the chief of the Fire Department at the Edgewood Arsenal and he lived in Havre de Grace, MD, where he made his decoys in a shop behind his house. This decoy is marked ith a conjoind HL for the rig of Harry Lingenfelter of Baltimore, MD. When I firt saw the mark on this decoy, I had trouble imagining how it was done. Eventually a friend, Jim Lockard, eplained that it was made with a timber stamp--a tool that timber companies use to mark the ends of logs.
