Great find on this 1969 era Rebel Salesman's case. The Case is in Excellent condition and in all truthfulness, I would have expected it to be in worse shape. I am pleasantly surprised. There looks as if there was a repair done to the thin shell and the repair looks as old as the case. The fish, lures case are all beautiful. The latches still function case lining is complete, just an all-round beautiful piece.
This lure signifies the quintessential vintage fishing lure and is the logo for Chuck's Tackle Box. Invented in 1859 by Riley Haskell the bait comes in three different sizes 3 1/2, 41/2 and 6". It was made primarily of both copper and brass although some lures have been found made entirely of each. This bait was made for approximately 16 years. Riley died at the young age of 55 in 1882. Riley has ties to New Hampshire in that his mother was from Concord NH.
