I don't know what it is, but I like the wire on the bottom of the lip to help it go around cover, very cool idea.

It's a True Temper Speed Shad, manufactured in Cleveland. I believe around the forties. I read somewhere that the black/white is less common, but these lures still seem fairly abundant.

Hope this helps,

Man, I love old lures. Please tell me he's not going to repaint that beautiful thing. I would put it in a glass case and put it on my mantle. And no, I'm not being sarcastic.

That is a TrueTemper Speed Shad but I do not ever remember seeing one that color. Just clean it up and Mount It .... Bomber made them later but that is one of the True Temper Models.
