The "W" prefix appears in Heddon's 1936 and 1937 catalogs in listings for luminous color lures for the River Runt Spook Sinker. (To view an article on this subject and a picture of the catalog listing, click HERE.) Though an example of a lure in this color has yet to be found, it is a Shiner Scale color pattern but with a solid white or luminous painted belly. It is only found on pre-WWII lures. The exact name is unknown.
