VGS - Gold/Brown Chrome

COLOR NAME: Gold/Brown Chrome
LURE(S) PICTURED: Lucky 13 Spook (2525VGS), Tiny Torpedo (364VGS), Chugger Jr (9522VGS), Super Sonic (9387VGS)

Gold chrome finish with brown stripe down the back and a brown blush around the eyes with brown scales on the sides; red chin blush. This is a cataloged color for these lures in 1971. The Gold/Brown Chrome color along with 5 other 'chrome' colors were introduced in Heddon's 1971 catalog for a number of other Heddon lures. The colors included NPY (Yellow Chrome), NPR (Red Chrome), NFD (Green Shad Chrome), NBL (Black Chrome) and VRB (Rainbow Chrome). In addition, Heddon assigned a different series number to every lure produced in the Chrome color, i.e., '9520' was the standard series number for the Chugger Jr but in a Chrome color, it was 9522. That series number continued to 1974 and then Heddon reverted back to the standard series number for the lure(s).
