Wonder why the screw eye is on top? Could that have been added later?

The three eyes look original.

Interesting find Deb!

I haven't seen any other 3 eyed Newell Lures. (maybe that is where the other eye went from the Newell Bunyip)
Extra large DD bib, screw head thru the top, and larger boney size, possible lack of undercoat tells me it could have been meant for a test run. Alas the owner is no longer with us to tell the history of the lure. Glad to have it in my collection.
