Wow, those are indeed cool. The wooden call has to be right up there with the first ones produced.

What I find somewhat weird is how the stick-on labels were seemingly helter-skelter. Your two and mine are all different. So far, I haven't found another one with the label straight along the barrel.

The black one you have was called the Blackjack model. It was of course voiced in Jackrabbit. The white version is voiced in Cottontail. Data from "Predator Calls, the first 50 years"

From the book. "The red one was originally produced for Timothy Ball as a coon call (Coon Squaller). Red was so appealing that Circe felt the need to also sell a few with their own labels" Plastic calls were introduced in 1970 with the other colors added after that. In reviewing the book the red call was made for the Timothy Ball company in the 1990's. That would mean the red Circe should be from that era as well. This is not for certain, I'm guessing from what I read in the book. The wooden Circe call, in jackrabbit is a second generation call as evidenced by the yellow Bobcat and background on the label. I'm guessing if you look inside it has a straight barrel. Circe's first calls were in 1958. I'm guessing 1960's on your wooden one. Beautiful calls.

Oh yes, I have several Circe calls and I love to take one or two of them out sometimes when I go calling. Nostalgia.

Yup,
Saw them. They can keep them at that price. I tried on both lots but way to much moola for me. I've got enough to last my lifetime.

The label on my black one doesn't specify whether it is a jack or cottontail rabbit. I guess that info was on the box, huh?

Again,
black= blackjack, which is a jackrabbit. The white version was voiced in cottontail.
