Ted, explained why many of these LS models are now seen with the clamp stand. The clamp stand was an option precisely at the time the LS models were available.
As always, Ted is a wealth of knowledge. Thanks for setting me straight.
Thanks

Hi Chris,
             Yes it's the black 114h, Sorry, not very good photo's, light was failing and my old Iphone is on it's last legs.
        From what I can see, it looks NIB, the box has wear, but the reel looks in really minty condition.
      Unfortunately the previous owner has hit hard times, but this was his centre piece, It wasn't cheap, but I was smiling when It arrived and I could see
     the condition it was in.  I'll take some better shots of it when I get time in good light........

Very nice Col  Shocked

As Ted said "the black sideplates were only produced for a few months in late 1963 and early 1964" .... did the catalog come with in the box ?

Hi AC49,
              Yes that catalog was with the box,  good eye !
     It's from 76 I believe ?,  So that's definitely not a match for the reel, or the box to the reel possibly as well ?
    So maybe only a "minty"  114h black side plates reel only........
   Just need to compare this box to another couple of that era to try and confirm, but there at my factory....

 Nice find Col. Correct box or catalog isn't as important as the pristine condition of the reel IMHO.

 The blackies are much tougher to find these days, especially in great condition

Thank you Ted,
                       They are terrible photo's, I'll try and take a couple of clearer ones tomorrow.
            The reel was as the previous owner described, very nice condition, so I was really happy when I got to look at it in person.
         I'm not to worried about a non matching box, as you said, the reel was the important part.....

    (And thanks again for your input and advice  !)

Col
Col i have often wondered about these boxes, but they are the box that has come with the black 114h reels I have.
Now, i have seen a very early red 114h with what i thought was an even earlier box with a “new 114H” sticker and a supplementary pamphlet introducing the new red reels.
Either way, as Ted said, the condition of the reel is what matters most and yours in a winner

 Chris, you are right about the sticker covering the original model on the box, which would've been a 114.

 I'm going to apply my logic to this sticker....it was to use up the over abundant inventory of 114 boxes, since the 114h was far outselling the 114. Just make a sticker and the 114 boxes could get used up...I am certain the earliest 114h box wasn't the one with the added on sticker, and possibly those earliest boxes had postal code "32" instead of a zip code

 Also, Penn wasn't shy about using the word "new" for a reel that had been available for many years. The government has since put limitations on how long a product can be called new

Thank you for the insight Ted. I was asking myself if they used the stickers because the “new 114h” boxes had not been made yet when the reels came out. But i like your logic better.
