Are they the Reidy's Coca Cola lures? There are 2 different designs in the medium and deep divers in those. Put in a search using the search function quoting "Coca Cola" to see the differences.

I collect any promo lures- timber, plastic, metal, even have a couple of soft plastic promo.  But I don't believe they are worth the big price some people put on them

Yer I`m a bit the same as Martin Any promotional stuff is good, some would seem to be in abundance, others I think I shall now Nick name Martin Lures mostly made of plastic but as rare as Martins Hair Cuts
And He deliberately seems to have all the rare ones
I do not have as greater access to the older and historic timber hand made lures and even if I did do not have the ability to identify them
However I can read a bit of writing on the side of a lure
Guess I`m sort of a second class collector but enjoy it

Just collect what you like Kimo. They don't have to be expensive. I can't help myself but to have a collection of Les Barlow's, at $5 each.

No offence interpreted and I still don't like plastics to use. At the barra comp, my mate Bill had a gold bomber broken by a 66 cm barra, luckily the lure broke after he lifted it out of the water. But I do like promotional plasticsLOL
