Thanks for posting shots of those flies - the metal eyes would indicate that they were tied in the last centuary, prior to this every fly had a gut eye. The dyed blue guinea on the front of the Thunder&Lightening waddington(2nd photo) would probibaly suggest a dating of after 1960, as before this the original blue jay was used in most flies that called for it.
