Milwards Pike Tin - What should it contain?

I have just acquired a Milwards Pike Tackle Tin which contains a Fishing Gazette Float , 3 wire traces, Pike gag and discorger.
However there are two extra slots. What would have been be in the tin when originally sold? Any ideas please?

Maybe a baiting needle.

Good butter, crackers, and pike paté ????? :Scared:

That is so lovely, the condition is immaculate.
I would think a baiting needle or another disgorger
But treasure it as it is :Thumb:
I have one which is rusty and discolored, it has no separators, it has some pike bits added over the years, pretty rubbish compared to this lovely example

A lovely acquisition!
Might the mystery slots have held a porcupine quill float for catching bait, perhaps, or a spoon lure for when no baits are to be had?

I can't put up links but if you try vintage tackle you will get a picture of a Millard pike tin it's not in as good condition as yours but has it looks like a baiting needle and some other stuff I don't if original spinners snap tackle etc yours is the nicer condition one though a nice find indeed :fishing1: mike
