Jim and Deb Allen have been involved in decoy collecting since the early 1970's. Mentored by well-known collectors/dealers John Hillman, Bud Ward and others and working with well-known collectors as they amassed their collections has led Jim to become known as an expert for many regions with a main focus on the New Jersey and Delaware River decoy.

Jim is an electrical engineer by trade, working for Atlantic Electric as a manager.

Deb is a registered nurse, who currently works with RED-NUCLEUS as a medical writer/director.

Decoy Heritage is a Tuckerton New Jersey based decoy business, the same town that bore Harry V. Shourds, one of the well-known early New Jersey carvers. Though his initial passion has been buying and selling New Jersey decoys, Jim has had over 40 years of experience in brokering decoys from many different regions.

With his extensive knowledge of the decoys in existence in the decoy world and of the wants and needs of many decoy collectors in that space, Jim can help place any decoy consigned to him in the appropriate hands for a successful sale.
