Alright guys, I know next to nothing about vintage lures, and even less about vintage freshwater lures, so need some help identifying and pricing these lures for a friend. They were her father's lures, being kept in a tin in the basement....I got excited when she brought them to work to show the next few pics will be the little info I could get off the lures.....ok, go!
