You talking new Queen made coons or original Adrian Harris coons? Queen is currently making them with orange bone handles. Some of the early original Adrian Harris Coons had a corn cob type bone that depending on how the dye took could possibly look yellow. There were also some smooth natural bone that may look a little bit yellow. You got a picture? Here's a corn cob bone and a smooth bone.
