This one has holographic eyes - hard to show in picture, but they move as the lure moves

This one has "Swanee" embossed on one side and what looks to be a Lighthouse in the circle next to it

Don't know the bottom lure, posibly a Japanese copy?????

The top lure is called an Optic, came in two versions, same eyes as your as well as "normal" eyes, made 1959-1962

Don't know the actual name of the manufacturer.
