Checked my references but can't find these...of course old age sometimes causes me to miss the obvious...! All are wood lures.
Top: 4-1/4", odd diving lip
Middle: 5-1/4"
Bottom: 2-1/2"

I have a mint condition Hi-Yo Activated Fishing Lure . All three of the balloons brand new in the original box. I did some research on these and was told that there are only 8-10 like this still in existence today. Does anyone know what it could be worth at an auction ? They were made in Barberton Ohio back in 1947. The lure used dry ice inside the body of the lure to propel it through the water .

Tom, I am looking for a Trail's End Industries Pops-n-Diver lure for my poster. Ultimate match would have a red head and black back. Yours is the first I've seen and correctly ID'd by Scott. Would you consider selling it to me and if so what would you need? I am interested even though I'll still need to upgrade in the future.

Tom, I can ID several of your "unknowns" on your website. Top 2 are Trails End Industries Pop-N-Divers made in NY, next pic are 3 Japanese export market lures all made by Kiraku & Co, next is a Yakima Bait Co Bonefish, the 2 springhook plugs are both Rain-Bo made in Manitoba, and the last lure is an H&S Interchangeable lure made in OH.
