Unknown #82 - Purple Chrome?

COLOR NAME: Unknown #82 - Purple Chrome?
LURE(S) PICTURED: Baby Torpedo (361??)

Chrome or nickel plate body with purple scales, spine and purple around eyes. This is a uncataloged color for this lure and likely dates to 1971-1974 time period when Heddon produced the colors NPY (Yellow Chrome), NBL (Black Chrome), NFD (Green Shad Chrome), VGS (gold/brown Chrome) and VRB (Rainbow Chrome) for a variety of Heddon lures including the Baby Torpedos.

This may also be the color code PUSF (Purple, Silver Finish?), a color that exists in Heddon's Cobra lure that dates to the mid 1960's.
