WOW! interesting needles/hook hangers on them....that top needle looks to be a copy of the ones that were made with the hanger wire all the way through to the top of the plug then bent over...as to date no one seems to know who made them.But atleast a doz. or so are in collections who's owners are on this board....those are great


ps...keep those away from VB

I'd think you would have to use a very long screw eye in the nose of that beauty to keep from breaking that snout off. Looks like they have something wrapped around it to reinforce it, or is that for weighting? Very cool plug.
I hope Cape Nut Grape has some of those for me to see when I stop by finally. If he does Fred I will measure it up and blueprint it and send you a copy and if he doesn't I will stop by Jim's and measure that one in the pic up
