The next lure is his first Cod lure it was made in 2000 there was six in the set each a different color some had painted bibs some did not they came with a certificate of Authenticity .
just thinking about this theory of yours regarding only 6 lures made in the year 2000. maybe there were more made and the 6 means the month they were made in (6 being for the month of June) as his latest signed batch of lures have the month written on them. ??? ??? anyway, just a thought. Have you seen any painted bib lures as you have mentioned with 6/2000 written on the lures?

Here's two different Timber Turtles with two different size bibs. The one on the right has the same bib size as the plastic Turtles, the only difference being the holes for the tow point.

I don't know if that is one of the 6 Stephen ??? it hasn't got the 6/2000 written on it as Dave's and mine has. If there were 6 anyway or if they were made in the month of June year 2000 ??? ???
