Bonanza lures: looking for info
I recently acquired a large lot of lures from a club member in California that are marked "Bonanza Pat Pend". The lot consisted of about 400 lures in various stages of completion and a dealer display case. The only clues I have for dating these are some boxes of EMCO split rings and a pill bottle dated 1955 addressed to "Mrs Canterbury" from a pharmacy in Ventura California. I'm guessing his patent was never granted because its just a copy of George Bruton's 1905 joliet spinner.
Has anyone ever herd of these before?
