Classic style from the 1940's. In the future these will surly fade out of the market. Good to save one like this.

In my eyes, that reel is beautiful. I am a sucker for picture tail plates and have bought some of my Penns for the tail plate alone. This one reminds me of a 160 I found recently.

Am new here,terrible with these tech computers, but I can fish,so this is my long beach pat pending ,no parts #on any thing ,everything seems right less the handle and nut,it may be a pflueger handle missing hex nut,believe spool is 1 5/8, got at garage sale in Palm springs of all places,works well,but has been used,I did not go crazy restoring it,just opened n lubed
I find this one very interesting. (Pic posted below courtesy of DesertCatRat from page 9) I have two reels with Duvalls stickers. A 12/0 and a Live bait caster. I asked about this store over on Bloddydecks and this is the one response I got from member Deep Water Sail:

Quote
I was 10 years old in 1946 and Duvalls was a few blocks from my home
on Vermont Ave and 45th street on the corner a few blocks below the
Los Angeles Colisium. They sold fishing tackle and repaired outboard
engines. The owner was Mr Duvall and his son-in-law. I would hang out
after school in the store because I loved to fish and listen to the salty
stories. A few years later both of us moved away, the neighborhood
was starting to run down.This area was known as the killing fields, South
Central Los Angeles. I always wondered what happened to Mr Duvall
because he was very kind to me. Great memories.

   Something I noticed about Tbrom's LB 60...the tailplate appears to be dark brown...not black. Until now I've only seen those plates in black or occasionally mottled(brown with black speckles). Like Chris, I like those dealer stickers too, just cool nostalgia. Cool

Mo it is dark brown. The other side plate is black. I have the reel in my hands and didn't pick up on the color difference and probably never would have and you noticed it in a pic! Good eye.

Duvall's was around for many years. I do not know much about it but I do know it goes way back. Here is a card from that shop. Their early Penn Trade Reels should have a red knob.

The 259 is one of my favourite Penns.  When I received mine , it was as smooth as butter but had some surface corrosion on the rings and stand, so I got some new parts for it and it rejected them. Did not want to operate smoothly at all. I put the original parts back and it was happy again.
This has happened to me with 155 also. I just leave them alone now unless its a gear sleeve or dog ......."if it aint broke, don't fix it"

That is perfect. Sometimes we feel that a modern upgrade will fit and sometimes it does; but, more often than not, a reel made in the 1930's, even though the Model Name is the same, has enough minor differences to make the difference major.

   I picked up this Long Beach 65LS for 30 bucks and was stoked...ya don't see many light spooled 65s listed. Plastic spooled 60s are plentiful, but the 65s show up a lot less.  Then about an hour later I was surfing fleabay for more LB parts and I see another 65LS for $14.50 shipped! Talk about a bubble buster...sheesh! Oh well...mine was in a bit better condition. The plates are sharp and shiny, all parts are correct, and it even has the "accessory" clamping stand. Cool
