ID’ing my great grandfather’s lures

My grandfather recently passed away and I found his tackle box in the basement. To my surprise there were some very old, primitive lures also in the box that I can only assume were my great grandfather’s, or even older. I found a couple well-known ones, but I have three that both appear the be the oldest and are unmarked.

The last one, which I believe to be the oldest, is extremely primitive. Unfortunately, it’s missing an eye. It’s probably wishful thinking, but the nose style looks similar to a lure I encountered in my searches called Kirwan’s “Bad Egg.”

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
