RARE HEDDON DOWAGIAC MINNOW Lure Still In The Box


Item History and Pricing
Information:
Brand: Heddon
Original Description:
I am selling this RARE HEDDON DOWAGIAC MINNOW lure still In The box! This is an extremely rare lure and box. I am selling it from my grandfathers estate who was an avid collector of all things outdoors. It is in great condition. There is a small crack at the bottom of the lure which is indicated in the photos above, but other than that the condition is phenomenal. Nothing missing. Just the box can be worth up to $1,500. My knowledge of lures is limited so please reach out with any ques...tions you might have!

“Several versions of this lure are available — at least 15 versions still exist today — ranging in current value from $75 to $10,000. Most models have three or five treble hooks. The Dowagiac Minnow was introduced around 1904 and produced until at least 1930. Heddon named the bait after Dowagiac, Mich., where he lived and made fishing tackle. An original Dowagiac Minnow box can be worth up to $1,500. One version, a Dowagiac Minnow #150, listed in White's newest book as worth $10,000, actually brought White $48,500 once. The model he had was still in its box and in flawless condition.” -BassmasterOn May-17-19 at 09:29:41 PDT, seller added the following information:The bottom of the lure shows some cracking to the finish and a spec of black paint. It appears that area on the bottom received a bit of clear coat in the past possibly to help eliminate any further possibility of deterioration in that area.On May-18-19 at 09:00:16 PDT, seller added the following information:The tail of the lure shows loss of material around where the stud enters the lure. The stud is the piece that the hook is attached to. Looks like some of the lure material has chipped away.On May-18-19 at 09:07:56 PDT, seller added the following information:The paper sheet in the box does not appear to be ripped or torn
