Vintage Rapala lures. I don't know much about them, so any information or interest is welcome. I can take more photo's and answer any questions.

    well, from the date on the lure and the style i would guess this was 50th anniversary in 1986; but as i said, this is just a guess. if you are lucky, the paper inside has a date on it. and if the box is not glued, this would be another indication of say made-before-1990s.

    yes, the 1986 lure was made for the 50th anni, not sure how many were made, ive seen enough of them to believe maybe 5000-10000 were made, but most never made there way out of europe for some reason, since that is where i see most of them. in the box and in great condition like that, price of around $25-$40. the orange box lure is a valvoline give a way from the late 90's, value of $5 or so, there everywhere. the 18 is older, maybe late 60's, nice piece. if it has the little triangle tag on the saltwater hooks, it doubles the value, call it $15.
    the coundowns in the picture i would like to see better, are those perch, do they have the black paint down the back and part of the sides, or are they just green? hard to tell. the floaters are nice, but ubiquitous, $7-10 each.
