I remember someone (maybe be woz) said that PNewell used a black marker to sign lures.....
He had been offered a white ink marker to sign dark coloured lures.... but might not have every used one.

this scorp is listed as a P newell signed nude....

has also got some other nude Newells which raised some doubt......close but maybe a fake

I was going to PM Wazza to see if he knows him as same location. I was looking at the Topwater scorpian listed. Handwriting looks the jit and the shape and eyes are fine but there is no weight in the rear like all of mine and the 2 others I have seen. I asked a question and he replied that it was unweighted and he purchased direct from Peter . I cant see how it would work in the water, apart from just like a stick. Can someone buy it and try it out to satisfy my curiosity please lol
No it is not weighted at the rear. Yes i did purchase it from peter direct about 2 years ago.

So, did Peter never use screw in hook hangers, particularly in the later years ???

Peter did use screw in hook hangers. Looking at my scorpians and surface scorpians they have them. It is because of the numbers of undercoats and paint that they are deeper into the lure so I think so a nude shows them up more. (Can take a closer pic and show if needed.

Again though , that surface scorpian is just not right without the weight in the rear. Everything else about the lures is spot on though I think. The only question I had was the Kadaitcha that did not have the normal soldered tow point and instead a normal clip. Any comments from people more in the know.?

Two-bob .... think your right on the money, checked some of my painted Newels and must say that a large number of the later era ones definitely have screw in hook holders, albeit the open join is completely covered over by the paint thickness.

Gotta say, given the incredible first hand and personal knowledge of Peters lures by members on this site (unfortunately not me), it would be great to establish a 'known' list of variants that Peter used in the production of his lures over the various time spans.

There is no doubt that he did use screw in hook hangers and it was confirmed that in latter years he had experimented with Luxon clips etc etc. Would be great to hear from members who have 'confirmed' Newells to establish a definitive list of variants.

Think the thing that is probably most important though, is the signature thumbsupsmilie thumbsupsmilie anyone here a handwriting expert ???

I gave peter and kathy a white marker too sign my ploppies,coati's etc 2-3years ago until then he didn't know you could get them.
So some lures have been signed in white and Peter did use screw eyes in the later made lures.
