Heres my older ones, unfortunately none with handwriting.

The big blue one doesn't have writing or sticker I figure by the tooth marks that it may have been trolled a bit.

Presume this is one of Dominics.

Compared to some of the more recent ones the front profile is smaller so i will assume it is a bit earlier.

Also noticed the bib is pinned, I might hazard a guess that the front has been made more substantial to cope with the pressure of the bib which needed pinning.

All
Barra Pros were developed by me while we had the business.
An easy way to tell the difference between our lures and later models was ours were a slimmer and sometimes smaller lure. This was mainly aesthetic to give them a professional finish and look. They will have a small nose and not a cut off appearance.
I started pinning the bibs after anglers were complaining that a fellow North Queensland makers bibs were pulling out on trophy fish - I reckoned that nobody was going to accuse me of losing their fish of a lifetime.

Anyway I noticed soon after Terry Leadbeater also started pinning his bibs so he was obviously thinking the same.
