Swan Decoy Fetches $186,500 at Auction

I give you the world's most valuable swan decoy:



Last month it fetched $186,500 at auction, a record for a decoy of its kind. Interestingly, it was carved by Charles Birch of Virginia's Eastern Shore sometime in the late 1930s. Swan hunting was already outlawed by that time, so presumably it was used as a confidence decoy.
