Wear it on your hat, lapel, shirt, or etc. Great little pins. Very well made.

5681heddontiebara.jpg (74804 bytes) 5681heddontiebarb.jpg (150262 bytes) 5681heddontiebarc.jpg (61504 bytes) 5681heddontiebard.jpg (59526 bytes) This is a Heddon employee tie bar. Heddon gave lapel pins to employees based on years of service, they also had other items with the Heddon leaping bass on them, including women's compacts, tie bars, and etc. Not sure if this particular piece signified numbers of years of service. the bass is sterling silver, so marked, stamped Heddon on the back. The collector I bought it from told me he had bought it at the Daytona Florida Antique Tackle Collector's show in 2000. He said he purchased it from the owners of the Heddon Museum, who I also consulted about some of the Heddon pins in my collection. I am not sure if this was the original box. It is the right size, age, but any markings are worn off of it. The sterling bass is about 3/4 of a inch. Also bears the maker's mark on the tail. Good condition, light wear, and a bit of tarnish. Notice the River Runt hanging from the bass's lip? $225.00 item #5681

Set of 2. One Perch color, one red head & silver. 5/8 oz. Arbogast made 5000 of these in 2005 celebrating the 75th year since the company was founded in 1930. Each kit has the lure, a reproduction of the original box marked anniversary edition with limited edition number, a certificate of  authenticity, a brochure on the lure and a plastic display box. The outer paper box is covered with fishing photographs.  I have several sets. The first two photos show the two lures boxed. The third photo shows the plastic display box that comes with each lure, and the red and silver lure. The fourth photo is a close-up of the perch lure. The last photo is a close-up of the lure box.  There are really nice, quality, items and would make wonderful gifts for the fisherman or the fishing collector. Sure to be a collectible in the future.  Arbogast originally sold these at $29.99 for each lure. I am selling a set of two lures, one in each color, for $45.00. If you wanted just one lure, let me know the color, $25.00 each. If you want multiple sets, or lures, contact me and I may be able to discount.  item #5230

5613shakespearebulletoilera.jpg (64160 bytes) 5613shakespearebulletoilerb.jpg (72108 bytes) 5613shakespearebulletoilerc.jpg (23253 bytes) Shakespeare Fishing Reel Oiler. Bullet shaped. Has the body of a .30-06 cartridge, the bullet unscrews to allow you to use the probe to oil fishing reel parts. I have only had a couple of these. My best guess is that Shakespeare made bullets/cases during WW II. Either toward the end of the war these oilers were made as give away Victory items by Shakespeare. Or after the war they still had the machines for making cartridges and made some of these for give away items. Marked on the bottom Shakespeare, Kalamazoo U.S.A. 3 1/8 long. Nickel plated. Some light wear to the plating, a few small scratches. Hard to find item. I have two of these, both in same condition. $79.50 each item #5613

Using the tool in the 2nd photo, you punched holes in the can at designated spots, then tied a string to it and threw it overboard. Fish charm (powder/flakes/fish food?) would then attract fish right to your boat! (Wonder if it worked?) 4 1/2 inch tin can. Good condition, a few rust spots on top & bottom rims. 1950s $24.50 item #477

4620bassorenoa.jpg (25311 bytes) 4620bassorenob.jpg (9026 bytes) South Bend Bass Oreno. Model 973 RW. My guess would be 1950s. Correct box. Box shows some wear, especially on corners and edges, but I do not think the lure has been fished with. It does have some cracks in the paint as can be seen in the second photo. Wooden, impressed eyes. Surface rig hook hardware. $45.00 item #4620

A few light scratches. $29.50 item #5225


4980southbendtokena.jpg (26276 bytes) 4980southbendtokenb.jpg (24858 bytes) South Bend Bait Company "Fish and feel fit" token. 1 3/8 inches.
