Four Pennsylvania Fishing license badges - 1951, 1952, 1953 & 1955

ach one is authentic and highly collectible. Although southern states and earlier types are more highly sought after, these four definitely make a great addition to a collection. Was thinking about holding onto them.
Selling at $28.00 each.

The Pilot - by H.R. Stewart Co.

I found this little doosie at the bottom of a tackle box last year and it wasn't until recently that I found out what it was. This is the H.R. Stewart "Pilot" the lure dates to 1903. I was able to find and actual ad for the lure from a hardware magazine.This ad comes to us from the Hardware Dealers Magazine Vol.23 1905

This Ad shows the Pilot at the bottom with some well-known lures of the time
