Unusual Tin?

Can't say I've seen any others like it. Is this of any collectible interest?

It weighs 2.5 oz.

Mark,
I think they were made by Tri-Fin - might have been called sand eel jig. I did use them a long time ago (on Block) with not much success. TriFin also made a jig head with rubber tube called a "WhipTail". The 3/4 ounce whiptail in white was a great bass catcher.
