No mate, no writing on bibs.

They seem to have a skinnier arse end on them than the later lures.

Chief, found the Reddy coloured lure for ya mate.Definately an old one with the skinny arse and clean bib.It'll only be good for displaying though, the bib looks a bit off centre sorta like Bob's :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: ,just jokin' . It's got a couple of little marks but overall it's in good nick.
Only a couple of weeks to go now, can't wait :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
Cheers'

Chief, a lovely set of lures but from memory the originals all had brass plates not the zinc ones like the ones in your picture,and the euro carp was a brown and yellow not the black and yellow.
