The rare 10-inch copper 'Giant' Haskell Minnow fishing lure and its box made in the mid-1800s, seen in this 2003 handout photo, was sold Saturday, Nov. 8, 2003 for $101,000 at a fishing tackle auction in Boxboro, Mass. Haskell Minnows, said to be the first truly fish shaped lures and includes a revolving tail, were made by gunsmith Riley Haskell of Painesville, Ohio, starting in the 1850s. This 'Giant' Haskell Minnow, sold to South Carolina construction worker Tracey Shirey, was described by Shirey as'the Holy Grail' of fishing lures. (AP Photo/Lang's Tackle Auction)
