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
