Default Question on lynch box call

I got a lynch box call given to me that used to be my uncles. It is a fool proof model no 101 with 1965 out beside the model. Is 1965 the year it was made. On the other side it has a liberty mississippi address. It is a great sounding call that I hope to call one in with this spring.

First turkey call I ever had was a Lynch fool proof box call. Parents gave it to me for Christmas years ago. Didn't know they were different types of chalk at the time and eventually ruined the call using a oil based chalk on it. Only thing I ever called up with it was a grey fox. Called it up on the first morning that I ever tried the call out in the woods.

I'm not sure what the 1965 means, but mine has the same information yours does and it was bought in the 80's so I'd guess it's not when it was made.

That is the year it was made. Lynch hasn't been made in mississippi for awhile. It was bought by some of my friends father. They use to be made in Thomasville, GA but they closed it down now

O by the way if you find one somewhere buy it! Not going to be able to get them anymore. They have almost shipped out what they had in the warehouse

It also has patents pending on the side. So i'm assuming it was one of the first fool proof calls.

Mine does to...

I still don't think this was when the call was made. Maybe someone else can respond. Hard for me to believe that my call bought in the 80's would have been made in 1965.

First Lynch Foolproofs were made in Birmingham, Alabama. It came out in 1960. Then was later replaced with the 1965 model.

They were made in Liberty from around '72 until the early90's.

It's probably worth around $75.

Does your call have made in mississippi on it also. I did not really think it was made in 1965 but it would of been neat if it was.

On the left side, it says:

LYNCH'S FOOL PROOF TURKEY CALL

It's fool proof. It's set for the yelp, cluck, put, whine, and cackle. It is semi-automatic. Read simple instructions. Patents pending. This box made and tested by M.L. Lynch Co., World's Champion Turkey Caller and Manufacturer, P.O. Box 377, Liberty, Mississippi.

right side says:

LYNCH'S FOOL PROOF TURKEY CALL - Model No. 101 1965


Is yours the same or different?

I'm sorry it's not the year it was made. It is part of the model number.

the allen jenkins family are part owners of the old ml lynch company that now resides in thomasville, ga. they recently stopped production on the lynch brand and will go under a new brand. you can still get that good sounding call but it will be named differently. the birmingham calls are the most valuable and the liberty calls are the most popular around now. if you have one, keep it. it will grow in value. great sounding call.

Mr. Jenkins was selling the new calls at the convention. They had his name on them but looked like a Lynch to me.

reading this made me think of the one i have its a lynch world champion model 102, i am assuming it was made in miss because it says "If this box is no obtainable locally or from M.L lynch Co. liberty miss." Are these pretty common calls? i dont see them in stores, i bought this call 8 or 9 years ago

Default Lynch fool proof turkey call

So what if you have a Lynch Fool Proof Turkey Call, Model 101 1965 that says on the side of the box. "This call was made and tested by M L Lynch, World Champion Turkey Caller and Manufacturer, 306 Edgewood Boulevard Birmingham 9 Alabama". Plus you have the ORIGINAL Instruction sheet.

What would it be worth?

those are worth a good bit more than the liberty calls. i'm not sure of exact price but they usually go over 150 on ebay.
