Antique Turkey Calls:
$430

Original Gibson box turkey call. Patented Jan. 5th 1897 "Gibson Turkey Call &
Patented Jan. 5th 1897
Simmons Hardware Co. Sole Agts.
St. Louis MO" Above double stamped. I'm told that is rare. Beautiful sound, crisp and clear. Box has glued approx. 1 1/2" crack along upper edge (already done when I got it) of one side and a approx. 2" minor crack on top near screw. Otherwise used but really good condition. See photos.

Also included is hand carved scratch box. Henry Gibson is credited with obtaining the first patent for a turkey box caller in 1897.
His call was a simple sawn-and-glued box (there are some examples of dugout calls as well) made preferably of cedar. Although there are no dimensions listed on the patent, Gibson's are generally about 1 1/8" wide and 9 7/8" long along the bottom of the call. Gibson lists cedar as the wood of preference in his patent and the old ads for Gibson's back this up but he may have experimented with other wood types.
The Gibson calls were sold through Simmons Hardware Store in St. Louis, Missouri and J. T. Lloyd Hardware of Little Rock, Arkansas. The Simmons Hardware Store calls are the most common but there are some calls out there with J.T. Lloyd Hardware on them. There were also many personalized Gibson calls he made before he applied for the patent.
Depending on condition, I've seen these calls go from around $800 to almost $10,000.
