Sam Barnes (1847-1926) lived in Havre d Grace, Md, where he worked as a decoy maker, gunner, and fisherman. This particular decoy was from the rig of Glenn L. Martin, an American aviation pioneer from Baltimore, MD. Martin was a pilot who designed and built aircraft; he founded a company that became the aviation leader Lockhead Martin. The decoy has the GLM brand on its bottom.
Please look carefully at ALL photos of the decoys. We try very hard to describe accurately the physical appearance (including any blemishes) of the decoys we sell. Still, if you are dissatisfied with your purchase after you receive it, you may return it for a full refund (less fees if you paid by credit card) as long as the decoy is returned within two weeks in the same condition that it was in when shipped to you. You are responsible for shipping costs for returns.
