6XRS - Gold, Silver Shore Minnow?

COLOR NAME: Gold, Silver Shore Minnow?
LURE(S) PICTURED: Basser Spook (9856XRS)
DESCRIPTION: Basser Spook: Early 2 piece hardware version with gold sides, red head and tail, black ribs, silver scale pattern on center rib and silver scale pattern on belly. The color code is a educated guess based on the Heddon color code scheme for the time period (c. early 1930's). '6' was used at that time for GOLD and XRS for Silver Shore Minnow. This is both a uncataloged Heddon color for any lure as well as for this lure and is quite rare. (Special thanks to Andrew Walter for the pictures!)
