Three Zaragossa's (6500 series) in green  crackle back, early perch scale, scale back with gold flitter.  And, a Vann Clay Zaragossa look-a-like (second from top).  Part of a collection from the Fitzsimons, of Georgia, estate which were graciously added to this collection.

 

 

Also shown are the two types of hardware found on Zaragossa's over the years:  L-rig, and two piece.  The top lure is the Vann Clay with cup rig.  Other than a few no chin Zara's which have been noted, the Zaragossa was not made in cup rig.
