Roger,
I'll have a look through my bits n pieces, but I am fairly sure the only ones I have left are wired on to my display.

Instead of starting a new thread I thought I would resurrect this one;

Here's some old glass eyed river runts with early body shape and 2 piece hardware . . . not the earliest versions but very nice and where the modern runt evolved from. Top one is in Rainbow, second is shiner scale and the other two are pike and perch scale??

Very organic shape to these and fantastic finishes. I notice one has bigger glass eyes than the rest . . . took a while to notice!!

Nice set Roger,
I especially like the 'Shiner Scale' on the top left. bowsmilie One of the extremely collectible early colours from Heddon's stable.

Cheers Brad

Again thanks for the reference sites and appreciation of these lures. Although this is a site that has a focus on Australian lures I have always felt that the historical lures like this give a better understanding of the modern lure and how the Aussie lures developed late and external to other lure markets. This is why I like to focus on the old USA stuff.

I actually have lurelore's CD's and have contacted Tom a few times . . . great guy

Much appreciated Dave clapclap clapclap

You're welcome Roger.

I've had contact with Tom too...and he is a great guy....has helped me a lot. clapclap

If you look on his site at the pictures of the novelty Skoal and Copenhagen lures (series # 9416 and 9417)...those are pics of my lures he used as he didn't have any of them.

Here's another pic I gave him for reference...
