Unfortunately the Whitefriars duck site is off line temporarily pending a re-vamp. But are we assuming you do mean Whitefriars ducks, if so I will give you a list of colours tomorrow ( too late now , sorry!) unless someone comes along to do so before me.

Catalogued colours for Whitefriars Ducks:

Flint /   Amber / Sea Green / Sapphire Blue / Twilight /
Arctic Blue / Ocean Green / Ruby
Silver

FLC Aqua / FLC Gold / FLC Sky Blue

I am fairly sure this is the complete list.

It is known that there may be a few friggers in a couple of colours like Tangerine and another blue, but these are rare but still are unmistakeably the Whitefriars duck shape.

Hope this helps.  Emmi


PS  There are some very serious duck collectors on the Whitefriars site,  here :  http://www.whitefriars.com/,  who will be only too pleased to help with anything further.

I picked up a flint one the week before last, are they common or less so? It's the first duck I've found for sale round these parts and she's now keeping the trinket sets company on the shelf - a sort of guard duck I suppose! ;D

As it got a fire polished beak or ground Anne. I think generally the earlier primitive shaped ones are harder to find, read somewhere the shape changed around mid  sixties when also a grinding machine was employed to speed up the process.
A few intermediate ones in the later Arctic and ocean colours with both characteristics, but generally after '64 they all had the more well known shape with the ground beak.
Some good photos here you may find helpful shy1 till Jill's site is up and running again.

The rarity value of the later FLC ones especially sky blue is really purely down to amounts made.
The early ones down to numbers survived.

It was hoping it would be camouflaged by dint of colour alone......
