Wooden stumpjumper or copy

Hello,

New to site, not really a collector - was mainly poking around as I'd heard tenterfield darts were worth a dollar or two. Seems true and the few (3) that I have will be retired from swimming and will probably be sold as i'd be cut losing them to snags if they are worth three or so new lures.

Anyway I do have one or two other wooden lures in various tackleboxes. I'm hoping I've attached a pic of what i suspect is either a wooden stumpjumper or copy. Its very close in size and shape to the standard large plastic ones. I found it on a log in the Murrumbidgee some years ago (west of wagga). The paint job is pretty eyecatching but i suspect not factory. The bibs metal and the eyes are just painted on. Any guesses on how to get more of an idea of wether its a knockoff or the real mccoy. If its worth nothing i'll hang onto it as its pleasing to look at.

Paint isn't original, but I'd take a risk at auction. Looks good enough for me.

Speaking of auctions Craig I see your ruler back on that other site after a bit of an absence.
