Welcome Bill, I have no idea what it is, nice lure though. One of the experts here might know. Cheers Richard.

Could this be a very early unsigned C-lure? Something about the shoulder area, reminds me of one of his early Dumpty's.

You really should see an Optometrist seaweed lol.

My guess would be a Xerox Wild River copy. 
Stick on eyes, wires, bib and template/stripes all match known Xerox lures
The body looks almost identical to a W R with some very small differences.

Even if it was possibly a Wild River repaint the wires and bib say not W R.

Something very special I think, nice find BS.

Of course, this is all just an educated guess so I could be completely wrong.

Several references to Xerox on LL seaweed but this one in particular might enlighten you.


Scroll down till you get to Oldman's reply.

I know I'm thick, still in the dark, I know what Xerox means (as in Copier), but who are you alluding to? Killalure?, Nautilus?. I've seen Munt poppers with this shaped lip.
These posts appeared in 2009, don't recall seeing them.
Don't keep me in suspense .
