Got this in a find with some very early lures. Unmarked props, two belly weights that protrude, yellow iris glass eyes. Thanks!

Joe,

I will take your word for it, you have much more experience than I do.

This though leads to me to another question, I wonder if there a link between Harkauf and Pflueger?

Look at the Pflueger Heritage book (Ruby) page 47, bottom picture. Besides the paint and protruding weights they look pretty similar.

What you actually have is a Harkauf Minnow….round body, unmarked bow tie props, screw eye line tie and rear hook hanger…as well as the smaller belly weights that are situated close to each other.

Hello,

As Scott said, it looks to be a Wizard, I would say second body style. 1905-1909, as it does not look to have through wire hook hanger. Does it say Pflueger on the front prop?

I think you have yourself a circa 1903 Pflueger Wizard.
