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

Before first light — with nothing less than wonder, and humility — I scan the cool, dark waters for the coming horizon — and the hope of what that deep unknowing might hold for me today...

——————————————————

Nothing happened. The fish just moved away slowly and the old man could not raise him an inch. His line was strong and made for heavy fish and he held it against his back until it was so taut that beads of water were jumping from it. Then it began to make a slow hissing sound in the water and he still held it, bracing himself against the thwart and leaning back against the pull. The boat began to move slowly off toward the north-west.

Santiago knew what he was in for, his lifelong experience had prepared him...

From Ernest Hemingway’s — “The Old Man and the Sea”
