The Greenduck Co. was based in Chicago. I was unaware they made varnish, but do know they made Fraternity Medals and such in the early 1900's

ANSWER-

THE GREEN DUCK METAL STAMPING CO. WAS LOCATED AT 1520 WEST MONTANA,CHICIGO ILLINOIS.I BELIEVE THAT IT WAS IN BUSINESS FROM 1906 UNTIL THE 1960`S OR EARLY 70`S.THEY MADE ELECTION PINS ALSO SPOONS FOR THE CENTURY OF PROGRESS, PROBABLY OTHER ITEMS ALSO,BUT THEY WERE A METAL STAMPING COMPANY SO I DO NOT BELIEVE THAT THEY MADE VARNISH.

The company was also involved in the manufacture of some the early Illinois vehicle tags and license plates.

GREEN DUCK RE-LOCATED FROM CHICAGO TO HERNANDO, MISSISSIPPI IN 1962 AND FINALLY CLOSED IN 2004. THEY MADE ELECTION BUTTONS, THE METAL CRICKETS (USED AT D-DAY FOR SIGNALING AND ALSO USED FOR DOLPHIN TRAINING AT SEA WORLD), & MARDI GRAS DUBLOONS. IN 1983, THEY BEGAN MAKING SLOT TOKENS FOR US CASINOS. IN 1996, GREEN DUCK WAS SOLD TO A BIRMINGHAM, ENGLAND COMPANY AND SLOWLY WENT DOWN HILL. I WORKED THERE FROM 1982 UNTIL 1993 AND CAME AWAY WITH AN AMAZING COLLECTION OF ITEMS THEY MADE DURING THE LONG HISTORY.

I found a radiator plate for a 1914 willy-overland co. model 79 car and had The GreenDuck co. stamped on the back so they made these as well.....hope this helps!!

I have a watch fob with Abraham Lincoln on the face and Springfield Il. May 18, 1927 on the reverse. In very small print on front and back it is stamped The Greenduck co. Any idea if this has any collector value?
