Default Oldest turkey call ?

Fellow fan addicts,
Each season there are new versions of calls, many with a new tweak or feature that somehow improves it over its predecessors. After a recent discussion with a friend I got to wondering, what the oldest calls folks are using are.

What is the oldest call you still have, that you used at least once to kill a gobbler? It can be any style. It has to be yours; inherited, bought, found or traded for. Pictures would be cool.

I can't wait to see the results. I'm sure there's a few awesome Neil Costs or Tom Turpins out there.

Me: Nothing special, a M.A.D. Super Aluminator I bought in 2001. It still rides in my vest.

I've got an Ashby box call that was bought from Wal Mart back about 1991. That's about it. I only dream of those special calls.

A used H.S. Strut glass call given to me by a fellow NWTF member who helped me get started in turkey hunting in 1994. It is still my fav. call and it has brought in many toms that I have taken.
