      Your lure is a "Cornelius Lie Bait", Pat Nov. 17, 1885. Pat #330793. The book value is stated as $750.00 to $1000.00. Hope this info helps you! Regards, Thom

      Great find ,it is a very interesting how it was made.

      Couldn't identify it - but any vintage metal minnow = $$$, especially with built in action for hooks or hardware. Super find, enjoy.
