Copies of the Big O. First ones were made of Balsa and then Foam. Yours might be Balsa. Hard to tell the difference. I am not sure of the value but I would bet over $40 each (might be more). There is a local guy that collects them and has the information on them. He purchased the rest of the inventory and some other items when they stopped making them. He has some new ones that were the last of the foam and sells them for $25 ea. I have 3 or 4 balsa ones and they look just like the foam ones. Hard to tell them apart if they are not damaged. 70's if I am not mistaken. I'll try to find out a little more on them.

Palmetto's right...I would love to have some of those babies. Hold on to them even if you don't fish with them...unless of course you want to sell them to me. ;)
