In Reply to: Did early Donaly boxes have paper insert? posted by Mike Houle NFLCC SWLCC [] on Sunday, April 15, 2018 at 8:18AM :

the early picture box w/ The Redfin Minnow or Catchum Big Bait had a long folding paper w/ images and #'s for those earliest baits. I've only seen it a couple of times.

The Court St. box may have had paper, but it would likely only hold the Floater. The earliest versions w/ unmarked props, "U" shaped piece behind line tie attached to the prop would be brass and hooks might be hung w/ Gem Clips like those seen on Minnows and Early Weedless. I guess the version we call the Mouse w/ the flapper blade and kind of sweeping props might also be found in that box. Can anyone post a pic of that early paper? It is really interesting.
