I saw this today, and thought some AT member might like it.   I'd be happy to help with shipping from Phila if needed.

I have no idea at this point.   There is some lettering engraved on the bottom of the stand, but I can't read it.

Looked through around 300 old baitcasters just now --

I am pretty sure that I have that same reel, or very similar --

Most of the engraved reels seem to be old JC Higgins or Wards, or perhaps trade reels.

These Sears & Wards trade reels could have been Pflueger, Southbend, Bronson, Langley, Shakespeare, and maybe a dozen others.

Seems like the major retailers of the day would contract with the manufacturers to issue reels -- and the more bling, the better -- such as engraving.  These make nice display pieces.

Best,

Fred

Start doing whatever it is you need to do, and sooner or later you’ll figure out how to do it better. Experience is your best guide.
