HW - Unknown name

LURE(S) PICTURED: 150 Dowagiac Minnow (150HW) Torpedo (120HW)

Gold body with white or ivory color nose, red around eyes. The Torpedo is a early model as it has the L-rig hardware used in the 1920's and early 1930's. A Heddon 150 lure of this same color is pictured in the book The Heddon Legacy by Bill Roberts and Rob Pavey, p. 123, and is described as being a "gold metallic paint." The 150 shown was found in this box by Will Nelson - the box picture is enhanced to better show the color code as it is fairly faded.
