    My best friend past away a few months ago. He left me some signed Tom Taber decoys that I have no idea of what to do with them. Is there anyone that can give me an idea of what they are worth.
    I have looked thru a ton of the pics of Tabers' decoys and found some similar but with no value stated.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    There is a big bunch of them out there. He did work for DU. Put'em on a shelf and enjoy them for what they are.

    have a feeling he didnt leave them to you for monetary value... If they were mine it would be a reminder to me about the good times we shared because they wont mean squat to someone else other than a collector piece

    Believe me, he left me much more than some duck decoys. Duck hunting was one of his passions until he could no longer hunt. I am not seeking the value for a sale. I would like to know the value for my own knowledge. I would prefer them go to a home that appreciates the workmanship.

    They are worth $50.00-$100.00 each depending on size & species.
