Creek Chub Bait Co. Lures

''''''''
CBCo #5301 Husky Dingbat, Perch:
$250.00

A very tough series, especially above VG grade. Old tackle boxes and toothed monsters of the deep didn't do these hefty baits any favors. This one has perfect glass eyes, none but almost imperceptible lines on the belly. There are several pointer pecks. Back stenciled. Hardware is above average. The green hair is fairly weak on the left and just a strong wisp on the right. The wood is VG++ or better. (Cat. #19047)

CCBCo #1606 Special Baby Injured Minnow, Goldfish:
$750.00
Quite rare. Out of a mature collection. Decent hardware, perfect glass eyes, double hooks. Nicks on top and left side. Right side much nicer. Belly rubs to primer and a network of fine lines. No left side marking (too early). VG+. A nice unnumbered box & a 1940 pocket catalog. (Cat. #19014)

CCBCo #302 Crawdad, Albino:
$45.00
Has the profile of a 1920s bait. Black bead eyes, red chin blush, CCBCo marked & plated tail. A few light age lines. Parts of the red legs are in the box. The store cost code and $1.05 price are still on the bait and can be removed if you wish. Brass cups, but looks earlier than WWII. A terrible CCBCo box, too. (Cat. #18925)
