    I'm considering selling my beautiful Old Town Scale Miniature Canoe Model.

    If anyone has knowledge of specialized auctions i.e. Fishing Tackle/Decoy auctions, and other suitable types of auctions, also Museums, Private collectors, Retailers, and the like...please post them here.

    A little history about my canoe...

    I've owned this Old Town Model Canoe since I was a boy, it has been well taken care of and has rarely been exposed to light for the last 46 years.

    It's paint is in fine condition and a beautiful blue with gold leaf outlining Greek Key pattern is painted on both sides.

    It comes with two paddles. It has need of some minor repair. (I'm not sure if I'll sell it "as is" or have it repaired, by an expert canoe enthusiast before I sell it) One thwart and one seat need re-attachment on one side only, one gunwhale has a crack that can be easily repaired and the beautifully caned seats could be recaned or perhaps the missing cane can be replaced or left alone (due to the fact the existing caning is beautifully patterned) other than these small details, it's in rather fine condition!

    Thank you in advance! Any and all thread drift (into repair realms etc) are welcomed by me...
