Florida Fishing Tackle Shiner Lure, 3 1/2, GE, C. 1939

A super clean and solid early lure showing very minor evidence of use, hardware has turned smooth dark brown, perfect glass eyes. My Dad's original inventory ticket indicates this lure is 3 1/2", I measured it 3 5/8". Lure shows one belly weight, and stencil printed Company log on belly as can be seen in the pics.

Not sure why dad paid so much for this lure, I assume it has to be something rare about it, but that escapes me.
