Couple more

The swimmer is a Hickey-Do. I have a couple others that have swivels for the hooks, but this one has hangers. Does this predate the swivels? Any idea about the jointed one. It has fins that are made out of film (plastic?) and I guess are to move in the water.

Nice...think the one on the left is a musky plug with shark skin/fin fins.

Good health and family

That was my first guess, the guy I got them from surf fished the outer cape.

Does the blue/white metal lip have hickey-do stamped on the belly?

reason I ask is Jet plugs had the hanger (similar to CCB) and was wondering if it was a jet plug and not a hickey do

The swimmer is marked Hickey-Do, I even have the top part of the box minus a side.

That's right about the left one. A king Strikee by the Naturalure Bait company out of Pasadena CA in the 50's. The fins are made of shark skin.

Is there a market or a collector value for the king Strikee Thanks Skitter, that Hickey Do is almost mint and will be put away.

Unfished around 20 to 30 bucks maybe, there's quite a few colors, and there's the Queen Strikee and some smaller ones with some various lip configurations. There's a little flyrod version, you don't see to much, and there's the Tropical Floater I've seen sell between 25 and 50 bucks.
