"There are many ways to approach the idea of collecting decoys. There are dozens and dozens of known carvers and factories. There are, of course, also dozens of species of birds represented, as well as many different hunting areas and major flyways. With this in mind the collector may choose to specialize in one of the areas. For instance, you might wish to concentrate on decoys that are indigenous to the area you live in, a particular species of bird, factory made decoys, etc. When using the value ranges in this book it is incumbent upon the collector to bear in mind several factors, not the least of which is aptly put by a noted collector of old fishing lures, Clyde Harbin, 'The Bass Man': 'Nothin' aint' worth nothin', til somebody wants it.'"
