g'day albert,

brett is right about it being both a newell & not so old...

there is a newell catalog for auction on the bay at the moment & this colour is featured on there if you want to have a look!

The only unusual feature on this one compared to the catalogued ones is that the bib is unpainted.

May have been replaced or peeled off but from the pics it doesn't appear to have been painted at any stage.

Simon, if you look real hard there's a few remnants on the edge and underside of the bib, and an edge where the paint cracked under the bib. I am betting it started to chip off and a previous owner removed the rest. At least to my old eyes through 2.5x magnif glasses lol
