I've been trying to learn about the Wooden Pull-Along Duck with Long Bill

enter image description here

The only one I can see is owned by the LEGO Group themselves and is kept in the LEGO House. Many were made in the 1930s and there should be a few still around, but I can't find any. Is there any public collection which has one? Or an auction in which one was sold?

    The only one I have ever seen was for sale in a car-booth sale in Bad Bramstedt (just north of Hamburg in Germany) in summer 2003. If I had known at the time what it was, I would have offered a lot more for it than the 1 EURO it was priced at....

    @Tonny that's nearly as painful as doing the math on how much something cost me in Bitcoin when I bought it in 2013. Jan 30 at 21:17

    @tonny that's quite the miss! Although, the fact that it can crop up like that makes it all the stranger that it is so impossible to find them.

    The problem is that whoever knows what they have will not part from it (at least presumably not on Bricklink), and those who don't know that their old wooden duck toy is actually an invaluable LEGO relic - well, they won't try to sell it or learn more about it.

Answering the question in your bounty edit ("I'm looking for any public case of an original wooden duck being owned or sold"):

Here is a forum entry by someone in the USA who managed to buy one in 2016 from Denmark for 100$

This video is a review of the wooden duck, with the story of how it was acquired: "running a price of several thousand dollars".
