I was going to put them in a display case if they where.
They are old all right. I'm in my 60's and I remember having a number of them in my tackle box 30+ years ago.
Only one had a date on it it was 1967.
The top three lures might be Tadpollys, the yellow one with red diamonds looks like a Lazy Ike. I don't know if that helps you dating them or not.
I would say yours is old but you can still buy spoons like those in salmon country of all places even Bass pro. Still would make a great display.
Northern lures: Charger spoon, Tadpolly's, lime-glow Crocodile - Steelhead trout/salmon lures. 70s-80's most likely.
Anybody that knows what a Lazy Ike or Tadpolly is has been around a while. I've had several of those. LOL
The seven diamond brand of spoon was big stuff in great lakes /Quetico area in forties-fifties. Many spoons and similar reflective lures had the various patterns of seven diamonds painted on them, as did the plastic lures like yours. No clue as to value but have tackle boxes full of this type lure.

The ones on the right look like older hellbenders. Not sure, just what it looks like to me.
