The Duncan Special 44 is the original and first version of the Duncan Special that was made, probably in the 1950s. It is the only wooden version of the Duncan Special, and the only one made before Flambeau bought the Duncan brand.
This yoyo is original old stock, and unused. It appears to have the original string.
From what we understand, it originated from the estate sale of a gentleman who was once a toy salesman. It was one of his samples, and that is why it is still unused. (There were two of them.)
