Martin, There were three to make the set, all wrapped in the star foil reminiscent of the original lolly foil used and done in favourite colour choice of the 3 sons still in the business and signed by them.

Color codes For 100th anniversary lures.
ARR Silver Grey Back signed Risto
PER Gold Brown Orange Belly signed Enzio
EIR Silver Olive Back signed Esko

although I have seen mention of a further 3 colours, which may have been a Europe only thing. The US and Aust seemed to only get the 3 above.

Roy, yeah I had a look earlier, all colours I already have except an ENS like Martins and the postage is bloomin silly, I know USPS first class airmail for under 4 oz is under $10 Aus.

Will just keep my eye out for them as they come along.
