SGL - Spook Glow, Perch?

COLOR NAME: Spook Glow, Perch?
LURE(S) PICTURED: Box for River Runt Spook Sinker (9110SGL)

This is a unknown color as only the box shown is known. The letters "SG" were used by Heddon in the 1950's to indicate "Spook Glow", a series of 6 known colors that had transparent colored bodies, 4 of which were catalogued for River Runt Spooks that included:

SG-XGY - Green Body, Yellow Shore Minnow
SG-XLB - Red Body, Black Shore Minnow
SG-XOY - Orange Body, Yellow Shore Minnow
SG-XYS - Yellow Body, Silver Shore Minnow

The "L" was always used to indicate "Perch" so it may be this is a Perch color pattern with a transparent body. The two uncatalogued Spook Glow colors fit into this conclusion, those being:

SG-OSD - Spook Glow, Orange Body, Shad?
SGSO - Spook Glow, Spotted Orange

Both the colors Shad (SD) and Spotted Orange (SO) were standard, catalogued colors for River Runt Spooks as is Perch (L) but exist in the Spook Glow pattern. Based on these, the Spook Glow, Perch would likely have a transparent orange body with a perch color pattern.
