It had both glass and tack eyes over its product lifespan. The lure came with two traditional treble hooks the middle secured by the standard issue painted cup rigging. The lure had a crescent moon type shape with the front end having a metal flasher plate fashioned over the top and bottom portions of the lure extending roughly an inch in. The is also where the front line tie is affixed. The lure was made in a host of colors over its time span.
