Being offered for sale is the vintage/antique ALL-BRASS CASTING REEL by unknown maker (marked "250" at base but otherwise, no visible maker's mark(s)) from circa the late 19th or early 20th century (best guess), as seen in the pictures/as described in the title. PLEASE SEE BELOW FOR CONDITION NOTES. Being offered for sale AS-FOUND, uncleaned (though it has clearly been cleaned up sometime in the recent past...probably because they were searching for a maker's mark). May require a thorough detailing to bring to its full potential. SATISFACTION GUARANTEED or your money back...no questions asked!
We are NOT vintage reel experts but this reel looks to be in great vintage condition and seems to be full functional. Reels in & reverses fine with a pretty damn loud, squealing/whining cranking noise. We see NO breaks or repairs. See pics.
Measures approx. 3-1/8" diameter x 2-5/8" deep (excluding handle). Please see ruler in pictures for size/scale reference. Additional measurements shall be provided upon request. Weighs 1 lb. 2.2 oz..
