eBay Eyes: Mustad Sample Cards

Unless you were an early 20th Century purveyor of fishing gear, I wouldn’t expect you to know that these cards, the backs of which you are seeing in the first three images, display fish hooks. They are from O. Mustad & Sons, a Norwegian company dating back to 1832. I’ve yet to snag one of these on eBay—they are not cheap—and it’s probably for the best. If I ever came to own one, I would have a hard time deciding which side to display.

eBay Eyes is an occasional presentation of found visual treats from that ever-expanding, electronic mega-marketplace.
