The Hinkle Lizard was first produced by Joseph Hinkle in 1949. A patent was awarded on November, 18, 1952 and the rights were sold to Emer Deuster in 1954. This is a Louiville Kentucky earlier version by the Hinkle Tackle Company. Lure is still attached to card in box and appears new, never used. Box has some minor wear but overall lure and box are in great shape, see photos. A tough lure to find from a great miscellaneous tackle company.
This lure will make a great addition to your collection. Be sure to check out our other tough and rare antique lures at My Bait Shop's Vault, the place to find our tougher collectible lures for sale.
