Farm Duck

The free Farm Duck whimsie in this issue is a new mold! See the photos below to see the differences between the Wade Retail Farmyard Duck whimsie (right) and the free Farm Duck (left) from this magazine. The new duck has a brown back and orange beak and feet on a blue base. This is the easy part to see the difference. The new duck is thinner and the head is at a different angle and the tail is a slightly different shape. The base is also a different shape and the font of "WADE ENGLAND" is also bolder on the new issue. The base ridges are much wider on the new one indicating that the piece was cast in a plaster mold where the older Wade whimsie ducks with the the fine ridges were press molded in steel dies.
