What year(s) did Victor have an oblong pan on their 1 1/2 coil spring traps?

I got myself a seniors' GPS.
Not only does it tell me how to get to my destination,
it tells me why I wanted to go there.

This pan was used in the 1970's on the #1 1/2 Victor coil. In 1969 they were still using the square pinch pan on the Victor #1 1/2 and by 1978 they had gone to the round pan on the #1 1/2 Victor coil.

This is from the 1976 ATC, Woodstream catalog.

Thank you snakecollector. I can't believe I never noticed one before. I have a bunch of various pans I keep for repairs, etc. I was surprised when I saw it was for a number 1 1/2 coil spring. At one time I had over 200 1 1/2 Victor coil springs and none of them had a pan like that.

That version was short lived and Iíve always referred to them as Ď77ís. I actually looked for them specifically at conventions at one time and still use many of them on my annual mink line. There are 2 versions, at least jaw wise. The first model does not have much room from the end of the pan to the loose jaw and the second model has higher jaws with a more centered pan.

Not to take away from this thread but I swear I had square pinch pans of 2 variations, a larger and smaller pan. The smaller one did not look cut down to me- I looked close.

Vic #1.75s had that pan, if I'm not mistaken.
