    I hope someone could help me to identify what the Loon and the cat tails are made of? Dimensions are about 6 1/2" x 4" Thank you so much for your assistance. Rob

    Figtree3 What would you do if you weren't afraid?

    What year is printed on the coin image that is above the loon?

    I found a similar loon item on etsy. https://www.etsy.com/listing/518184864/vintage-thermometer-loon-in-cattails?show_sold_out_detail=1
    This one includes a thermometer, and has a differently-designed label on the back. Description says:
    Overview

    • Vintage item from the 1960s
    • Materials: pressed board, bronzed plastic, faux wood finish, farenheit and celsius thermometer

    This company appears to be very prolific.

    Yes, that is how I dated the item using the coin and you are right a Loonie. Rob

    Thank you for providing me with what the materials are made of and that the company has been in business along time since the 1960s.
