@ MXB

To my big surprise I have just found one like this on a Hamburg fleamarket yesterday , also has this "modern" cross-slotted screw to hold the bib , thus can't be that old , I assume ?

A picture is containing in my new thread "Great Fleamarket Haul This Sunday" , .........any more info about these ?

According to Wikipedia, "The Phillips-head screw was invented by Henry F. Phillips in the early 1930s."

...so maybe not so modern? Image

Lucky Strike started in 1929, but didn't go into commercial production until 1931, so were there in the screw time frame, but I reckon Dieters is more modern era.
Unfortunately, Lucky Strike seem to still use the same colours and eyes as the did back in the early days, so aging this one will be a challenge for you Dieter. Might I suggest posting on joesoldlures site and see if the old hands there can give any pointers.

Here's some marked Lucky Strike 'Canada' . . . came as a lot with nice 'pin eyes'.

Not that old but nice lures;

when i saw this topic I thought it was going to be an advertising lure for the cigarette brand!

could have been a good cross sell for them...

Nice old lures though!

To the best of my knowledge...Lucky Strike has ALWAYS been based in Canada. You can see info on them on this Canadian collector site...

AND still in business...
