Major Heddon Midget Digit Discovery!

Post by rivermandave » Thu Sep 08, 2011 5:39 am

Several days ago I ran across an auction on Ebay for a box stamped with the code for a Midget Digit.

The model was 1st introduced in 1941...but the style of box was supposedly phased out in 1936.

I sent a link to the auction to Tom Jacomet on http://www.lurelore.com

Ironically....within the next couple of days...he ran across a set of 4 lures in the SAME type of box on the Joe's Old Lures website

To the best of our collective knowledge...this is the 1st time this has been made public about the box & lure combination.

I've attached the pics that Tom and I saved for reference thumbsupsmilie
