That is a bit of white on the end isn`t it Albert. The 110 doesn`t have that feature.

It`s in good nick too clapclap

Interested in other peoples ideas on a guide to time scales.In particular the bib pinning.

Haven't done any X-Rays (what about you Albert?) to know if the very earliest were pinned or if he started with the the timber screw we see later.

Would seem logical to me that an order would be First.... Pinned,covered and painted over

Second...... Screw,covered before painting

Third........ Visible screw,painted over

Fourth........Bare screw put in after painting

Are there any lures ON ORIGINAL CARDS with covered pin or screw? Visible painted screw? Or do they all have the unpainted screw?

Cheers,Jim

Very interesting Jim thumbsupsmilie

Good logic I am thinking. This is how the ones here stack up.
1. Covered pin early. I have a round eye carp with the paint chipped off to expose the pin, not screw thumbsupsmilie the other early ones are all covered.
2. Screw covered. This one I can`t be sure of. I don`t want to check lol

3. Visible screw painted over. All the larger Carp I have are done this way as are the BW & RB & Redfin. This supports your idea.
4. Unpainted screw. Every Fluo Pink in the place is like this as are all the Manaro Reds. thumbsupsmilie

Carded ones... 1 pinned & covered- 3 screwed & painted- 4 screwed unpainted. ??? ???

All guess work, but it does make sense
Regards.....Vince.

Hi Jim

Been eagerly waiting for your early Seekers thumbsupsmilie thumbsupsmilie

It is an interesting thought xraying lures. Have never consider doing it.

As far as timelines go, I find it impossible to date any particular Seeker to be able to say with any confidence when that lure was made. It will be fantastic if you can enlighten us Seeker fans bowsmilie bowsmilie

May be it is important to place these lures chronologically. I just wish that I can do it.

I imagine that if I were to xrayed all the early samples and find that are all pinned it might tell us that Ken pinned all his early lures.

Then do the same to the ones in the transitional period(just a term I coined in my humble effort) and find that they are both pinned or screwed, does that tell us which came first? I don't know Jim.

Similarly for the painted and unpainted screws I cannot tell with any confidence.

But there is logic in what you say Jim clapclap clapclap

This old 110 has been lovingly restored. clapclap I think it was a joint effort by 2 brilliant young luremakes from S.A. The body work by one & the clear by the other, if I`m correct thumbsupsmilie

It`s not original, but does show the beautiful grain of the Oregon used & give some idea of Ken`s constuction method.
