France?

This is supposed to be some French made lure during the 60's. Anyone care to a guess and worth. It has a lip, not a lead head as it looks in the pics.

ABU Elver and yup, made in France. Numby has tried to make one out of wood, I think he might have scaped the project though.

Why even try.........
