* The lip indentation on the 9630 series is correct for the 1st
generation 2 pc. tail models, but when the hook hangers were changed to surface rigging at
the tail it changed the balance of the lure. The lip was therefore moved forward to balance the
lure but the mold did remain the same. The introduction of bell hardware in 1974 on the belly actually
balanced the lure, which makes the lip indentation usable.
** The 730 series was stamped with "Heddon Sinker Punkinseed" from 1940
to 1943. After the war, they were stamped with just "Heddon Punkinseed". The 740
and 730 series were not listed in the 1946 catalog. In 1947 the 730 series was listed as
"The New Perfected Punkinseed". Heddon changed the color codes after the
war, so the 730 series color codes would have been XBW, XRW, and XRY.
