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.

*Make? Year?

*Make? Year?

*Fred Arrogast Jitterbug Year?

*Make? 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

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
