What is this lure?

Recommended Posts

Was given a tackle box that belonged to one of my employees fathers who passed around 15 years ago. Going through it I found this and I can't quite identify it but I feel like it might be valuable and if so I will offer it back to him. Probably won't take it but either way it would be nice to know what it is. No writing on the lure at all and at the end of the box says is wood minnow. Anyone have any ideas? And yes that's five 5 trebles

Does it have 2 lead weights in the bottom? They should be visible ( unpainted)

If this is a 5 hook minnow it could be worth 10,000.00 $
I should have asked if you would consider selling it. It was made Ohio in 1900.

No visible lead weights although it would appear there's definitely atleast 1 weight under the Finish

Just surprising there's no markings on it whatsoever. I looked for a while closest thing I can find is a Winchester minnow but that appeared to have markings on the blades

I got to do some more research but it looks like it might be a Heddon dawagiac 150, it would appear some of the earlier series did not have any stampings. That would be cool this lures un fished. There is some crazing in the Finish just from age but doesn't even have hook rash

Looks like an old Pfleuger.

Search for “Pfleuger 5 hook minnow” and some will come up.

Looks to be worth a couple hundred $$
