Default Can you name these old lures?

In a thread last night, there was discussion about old mirro-lures and older lures of similar type.
How many of you can name these?
The 2nd pic. should be easy since it's name is printed on the side.
There are 2 I canít name, they were in my dadís old tackle box.

Fourth one is the original Bomber lure, was the only deep diving lure we had in our tackle box when we bass fished in the sixties with our Mitchell 300s in east Texas near where Lake Fork is years before Fork was impounded.

The first one is a L&S MirrOlure (I believe) a 15M. I don't know the color code numbers though. Also, it doesn't look like the original hooks as they were slightly smaller on that series.

Hellbender is Hedden's version of the bomber.

These days they are mostly used as part of a deep diving trolling rig targeting stripers, hybrids and white bass. They run 15 to 25 feet depending on the size weight used and whether a spoon or jig head is trailed behind.

One is the hell bender. I used to tie one on with two three way swivels and have large rooster tails on the leader for stripe bass. I saw a original beetle spin also. Some of the others I have in a tackle box from my grand father when he passed away. They are made of wood.

#1 could be a Cisco Kid, but I think it's an L&S Bassmaster.

#2 Bingo

#3 Dalton Special

#4 Original Bomber - appears to be the 500 series. 600 series was the largest.

#5 I have no idea, but it's not The Thing. The Thing was an in-line spinner with a sponge spider on the back.

#6 Appears to be homemade, but it may be one of the first spinnerbaits made by Hildebrandt.

Sorry, guys, but there are no Hellbenders in those pics.

I knew #2 and #4. I caught my first bass on a hell bender. That lure was hell to retrieve with a Zebco 33.
