Are they both the same size? The one on top in the second pic looks like a Norman DD14

Agree, DD14. Slightly bigger and slightly longer lip/bill than the DLN

They do sell the lure blank for the Norman DLN and DD 14.
Someone could have just modified the eye design.

But the lure blank itself looks just about identical to the DD 14.

I have some Norman cranks with red eyes. They also put red eyes on their NXS model.

Normans. One is for sure a Deep Little N.

THEY MUST BE AN OLDER VERSION OF THE NORMAN AS THE EYES ARE DIFFERENT

For sure Norman Deep Little N is smaller of and DD14 is larger one.

Not knockoffs. I have about 200 Norman Ns and DDs and they came with different color eyes in different models and years

Neither are Norman.

While the body shape is the same, the eyes are not painted on and not on top. There is an eye cavity and its on the sides of the bait.

Probably a knockoff blank that someone used.

Thanks guys,I found the deep little n knock off blanks for sale online and they do have the eye sockets.That's what I am assuming these are even though the blue/yellow one seems to have an authentic norman gelcoat finish.

Bomber doesn't have that little bevel to the lip where it meets the lure body.
They do have Bomber eyes though.
A lot of Bombers also came with those treble hooks with the hook points rotated about 10 degrees (Excalibur TX3 trebles)
