Here's a few reels I purchased that came out of an estate on Long Island.  I don't know much about the Penn's other than the 16/0 is an early one with no part numbers, and the 12/0 and 9/0 are 1st generation reels.  The 16/0 is NIB.  The 12/0 is in excellent condition.  The OC 616 is in excellent condition, and the box is mint.  Enjoy!

Cheers,
John

 12/0 was $50 up thru 1942, so it is pre war

16/0 was $100 late 30's thru 1955, so tough to put a date on it. Non numbered would mean 1940's.

 Either way I'd put a value of $1,500 on just the boxed 16/0

 The boxed pre war 12/0 could easily be valued about the same amount with correct catalog and lube tube.

 Thanks for sharing your estate sale score !!

Man, what a beautiful collection of reels.  Excuse me for noticing the line but that is really nice too.  There is even a seized loop on the Ocean City.  Wish we could see how it is tied.

Here are the contents of the boxes.  The first two pictures are from the 16/0 and the second two pictures are of the 12/0.  I would guess the catalogs will help date both reels. 

The tackle from this estate was quite extensive, and represented a complete history of big game fishing, starting in the 30's and ending in the 60's.  The tackle included early reels by Kovalovsky through the later Penn and Ocean City reels.  And the rods ranged from early wood and cane rods by Gurrieri, John Herschel, and Kovalovsky, to later fiberglass rods by Lott Bros, featuring their famous crosswind fore-grip wrap.  He also kept detailed records on his yacht, correspondence between him and Arthur Kovalovsky, pictures of his catches, etc., the files of which were part of the collection.  There were also  a mountain of line driers, gaffs, rod belts and harnesses, etc.  He was very anal about changing out his linen line, and kept detailed notes regarding when he changed it out.  And all his gear was impeccably maintained.  There was even a beautiful plaque presented to him by the Nova Scotia Travel Bureau for catching the largest bluefin tuna in Nova Scotia waters in 1964 (760 pounds).  Yes, a once in a lifetime and very humbling find!

Cheers,
John

And Steve, I appreciate you noticed that loop!  I love that kind of stuff.  That simple knot is part of big game history.  Here is a closeup of it.  Don't ask me to duplicate it!  I can barely tie a granny knot!

Okay folks, let's guess at to the type of knot this is.  I guess a Bimini.  Dominick
