Old Antique " STAY-ON " FOOD BAITS Box & Wrappers with ? bait ?

Measures 4-5/8" x 2-5/8"

"A-B-C" BAIT & MFG. CO., DETROIT - MICHIGAN

Includes top (part with words) & bottom (unmarked)

FYI: Found this lure box, alongside a multitude of very old fishing lures, in a very old metal fishing box at an estate sale on Hubbard Lake, Michigan. From the looks of everything in this box, it has been tucked away in the garage for at least 40+ years. This auction is for the Stay-On Food Baits box & inside contents. I will be listing many more lures, some with their original cardboards throughout the upcoming weeks. Be sure to check back!

This box is darker than it originally was when it was new and is stained and shows wear, but the words are still very readable and is certainly a collectible. I don't know how old this box is or what is in the wrappers... old original bait?? Looks like sawdust wrapped up with it. Top reads, "STAY-ON " FOOD BAITS ~ Stay on the hooks; Do not dissolve, longer kept, better they are; Can be used over and over, always ready for use; Manufactured by "A-B-C" BAIT & MFG. CO., DETROIT - MICHIGAN "

This box will be shipped inside another box for protection, not an envelope.

~ Thanks for Looking! ~
