Fishing Lures - Papa Cobb

A long time ago, either my Grandmother E-E or my Mom must have offered Papa's (Warren Cobb) fishing lures to us.
I married a fisherman and I don't think there was anyone else in the family interested at the time. My Grandmother and Mom, through the years, usually did some "rummaging" in the attic or basement and found something they no longer wanted to store or just wanted it to go to another home where it would be used. Sometime, we were the lucky recipients!
Fast forward many years (maybe 20 - 25) and we are going through many of our stored items and came across these fishing lures.
Our son (Justin) who is an avid Florida fisherman and loves going out on and in the St. Johns River, hopefully will enjoy these lures that were owned by his Great-Grandfather. So on Thanksgiving day, we gave him some old lures (1930's - 1950's) to use or display. We may even try a few too, as we like to fish, just haven't done it lately.
Justin was amazed at the lures and even the artwork on the boxes. He will display some and use some. Maybe he will have some luck and be eating fresh fish soon!
