Ian sent me a refreshed Heddon Vamp from the 1930's before I left Brisbane after doing a little trading with him..

Came across it a couple of days ago and thought you might be interested in the paint work,It was sent in the lovely black box as well., with a note.

The paint work really pops.

It is a display lure. due to its age


Regards John

John's lure is a very early wooden Heddon with glass eyes and was in very bad shape. I have another later one I got from "Horrorhead" that has great patina and will stay as it is...
