Got home just in time to catch the end of Tom Jacomet's Ebay auction on this Heddon "Big Head" lure, Model #9330 in Color NFL - chrome with Fluorescent red rib. The Lure sold at a whopping $418.00 and some change.
I love lures like this that sell for these astonishing prices, I probably would have missed this one in any tackle box. Nice Lure Tom!
This lure signifies the quintessential vintage fishing lure and is the logo for Chuck's Tackle Box. Invented in 1859 by Riley Haskell the bait comes in three different sizes 3 1/2, 41/2 and 6". It was made primarily of both copper and brass although some lures have been found made entirely of each. This bait was made for approximately 16 years. Riley died at the young age of 55 in 1882. Riley has ties to New Hampshire in that his mother was from Concord NH.
