Norris swimmers

I was told that these are Norris swimmers. They came straight from a family friend who worked with Ernest. Any ideas?

Nice baits,
How about more pictures, they screw eye?
All I have seen is the squid and needles. As far as I know Brad only sold the squid.

I'm thinking there screw eyes, but they are different shapes and are filled in around the eye. On the red one the lip has a scratch in the paint and it almost looks like copper lip? These looked to be dipped in paint head first starting with the top color and overlapping the next color. If you look close you can see a paint drop hagging off the lip. I was told that these came out of a box of 15 to 20 plugs about the same.
