0RH - Fancy Green Back, Red Head

COLOR NAME: Fancy Green Back, Red Head
LURE(S) PICTURED: Zig-Wag and box (8800RH)

Zig-Wag: Solid red head, fancy green back body with white belly. "Fancy Green Back" was also known as Green Crackleback or just Fancy Back. This lure dates to the 1920's and early 1930's when '0' was used to indicate Fancy Green Back, thus 0RH for this color. This is a uncataloged color for this lure and is pretty much unique to the Zig-Wag.
