Completely original and found in the field. This uncleaned Wilcox Wiggler has been in my possession since finding it. Beautiful mottled finish. Eyes are perfect. Hooks & Hardware are phenomenal and in excellent condition! A truly great piece of fishing history. This being the first articulated/jointed minnow and was a true feat of ingenuity and genius. Has a small split in front of belly weight which is not at all uncommon. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Don't miss out on a lure that other collectors will only ever dream of owning.
