The cups on a 1908 Heddon 150 or 100,
which would be found in a wood box, are raised on the front part of the
cup rim to divert the hook away from the body. The earlier 1906-7 cup,
which would also be found in a wood box, is flat rimmed and not raised.
The 1908 nose is blunt and the 1906-7 nose is longer and more pointed.
