These metal lures with red faceted eyes - wondering if they are Bellbrook lures and if they are what were they called? Thanks in advance

Roger, Southam did a metal which they called a Bellbrook Brat. I have one on card and it resembles the 2 at the bottom but mine has no scales or detail punched into the body, simply painted scal on the concave side and clear coated, no name or brand markings. The eye seems to be 2 glass half eyes (unfaceted) and glued together.
I have seen numerous shapes similar attributed to both european and aussie makers.

Thanks Brad - I sort of remembered seeing the Bellbrook Brat and thought these may be them - the facetted eyes are set in the metal and the underneath part are sanded flat. No markings except for the scale patterns.
