Finally these arrived! Won 7 of the 8 Loren Greiner auctions last week. Greiner (probably with the help of his wife) made lures likely circa 1950s in Emmetsburg, IA. These are the only examples I know of.
Greiner was a WWII war hero who miraculously survived the Omaha Beach invasion on D-Day 1944.
Greiner died last year but lived to the ripe old age of 108. All these lures were purchased from his estate.
The only auction I missed was the one with the advertising lure blank shown....if the person who won that auction is reading this post please consider letting me make you an offer on that lot. I'd like to reunite the group.
These are NFS as I'd like to add to them and learn as much as possible about this lure maker. If you can help, please email me.
The link to a recent Greiner interview is posted below:
