I believe you are correct Chris.

Forget about all the reasons why something may not work. You only need to find one good reason why it will.

I could be wrong but I feel like this is the same green used on the green 4/0 in the penn headquarters. Mike or anybody can you confirm?

x2, I saw it in person as well, at the same time Sal did, actually! I think Martha Henze had a green reel that sold in the big auction in the early 2000s, that was another Senator, I think, but I think the same color.

It's possible, Chris but, to tell that would take a look at the insides of both of the reels side plates (tony you wanna crack that thing open for us Grin.)  The one in the factory doesn't look like it's seen much sunlight and is very shiny is why I say that. They both are a dark "hunter green."
No matter what I say SCORE!

Thank you guys very much! This is a different color green than we are used to seeing on the later monofills and Peer reels. I could be wrong but I feel like this is the same green used on the green 4/0 in the penn headquarters. Mike or anybody can you confirm?


This color looks to be very early. Long before the Monofils. I feel this reel is one of the special order reels that were being used for the rental businesses at the California Piers. Sort of like the green used on this late 1930's Sea Ford.
