Carl,
Here is a couple of pics of those lures I told you about, found in 2007, as you can see the corrosion on the hooks I've taken off the smaller green lure,
these hooks were the worst and I've removed to throw away. Largest green one 4.5" overall, all three signed "C" Lures.
Posted the black one earlier as an unknown, but you think it could well be one of your prototypes.
I've included the gold one with the small eyes, as I picked it up at the same time, no identifying marks, hoping you can identify?
All of these and two mint timber Elliots Darwin Darts in the 5" size found together, all with the corroded hooks.
As you can see the paint finish is pristine, never been near water.

@barraguru . . .

What a nice bunch of lures . . . keep the hooks and you may be able to source the exact hooks and then replace to bring the lures back to the original condition.

Carl . . . what treble hooks were you using?
