A buddy of mine is wanting me to sell this for him. Pretty cool. The lure has never been tied on a line. Condition is pretty amazing. Ive got some old lures but not in like new condition like this. Pretty cool. Anyone know what the color scheme is called?

They didn’t have very many colors. The box says 404, which means series 400 and 4 is for the color which is green minnow. Very nice lure BTW......

If you come up with a price, let me know. I have a NIB reel from the late 40's or early 50's. I would like to pair that lure with it after I find a vintage rod. Would make for a nice man cave addition.

On ebay, they go from .99 to $75 so I can't make a reasonable offer.

I have a triple treble Devil's Horse very similar. No original box though. That is a true collectors piece.
