I acquired a Model 12 I assume made in 1959 from the serial number. The right side of the receiver has a silver duck emblem. I find nothing with this emblem on any Model 12 images.

Any ideas or input please

It's simply an aftermarket personal custom touch. Almost certainly one of a kind. Unless some local guy would do it for his buddies or whomever saw it and wanted one too.

It almost looks like a Sid Bell design pewter wood duck...photo is a little hard to see details.

It definitely is not from the Winchester factory.

Enjoy your gun. I like the forend style of the 1959 guns.

Looks like an after market vent rib as well.
