Wasn't really sure where to put this but I figured this would work. Might be alittle off topic but I think vintage lures are really cool! I was given and old tacklebox full of lots of stuff and found what I think are old lures? I was wondering if I could get alittle help with identification and year. The order I will go in is top to bottom left to right.
*Rapala Original Floater Year?
*South Bend Bass Oreno Year: Late 40's
*South Bend Bass Oreno? Maybe too Short Year?
*Rapala Original Floater Year? I think it's older than the first one.
*Fred Arrogast Jitterbug Year?
*Kautzky Lazy Ike Year?
*Brook's Reefer Year?
*Bomber Lures Deep Runner Year? Original Box and Paperwork
*Same as Above
*Heddon Meadow Mouse Year?
Thanks for any info in advance

Row 1 - Lure 3 - South Bend Bait Co. Babe Oreno or Midge Oreno depending on the length. Midge is 2 1/4 and the Babe is 2 3/4 long.
Row 2 - Lure 2 and Row 3 - Lure 2 both look like Paw Paw Bait Co. lures. Called the "Pike Minnow Lure". From around the 1930's.
Row 2 - Lure 3 - South Bend Bait Co. Pike Oreno
Please note: I reserve the right to be wrong! LOL

Thanks for posting these oldtime goodies , ...like them all . Sadly I can't provide any help naming their age , ....I don't even know all of their modell names .
To access some collectors sites , check out this site , .....click "collector's links" on the left square :
Another site , that you might sign in and post your lures to identify or to learn more , is www.lureandmore.com , an Australian site , ....but also covers lots and lots of lures from around the world .

I have read several articles by Dr. Todd Larson regarding antique tackle. The man apparently knows more about the topic than any single person should. You could try a google search. He is affiliated with Field and Stream Magazine.

The mouse lure looks like a heddon meadow mouse series no. 4000 collector value range $50-$100, the paw paw pike minnows are valued at $10 to $30 This is out of the 6th edition Carl luckey Id and value book , prices these days are probably much less. If you need more help the guys at www.joeyates.com antique tackle forum can help you
