Years Produced: 1938 – 1958     Length: 1 5/8”     Weight: .4 oz.

General Notes: A miniature of the #5100 series. It has a smaller lip, hooks, & body. A good seller for the company. Made in the same colors as the Dingbat: #’s 00, 01, 02, 04, 13, 18, 19. Each color had coordinating dyed horsehair tails. Also, known as the “Baby Dingbat” in reference books, but listed in the old catalogs as a Midget, & "Ding Bat" in two words. Oddly, the #5100 series Dingbat was spelled in one word & two words depending on the year of the catalog.
