 The box was used on the low budget Penn models. The  #13 catalog is also a good score !!

Nice find !...What was the 'time frame" for that reel....had to be pretty early, the way the handle looks.

    A while back, I got a spool from Chad  (Thanks, again, Chad!)...one of the "ventilated arbor" type. Yesterday, I tore down a 149 ….pretty decent shape, EXCEPT for the spool...one of the heavy 3 piece ones, that had bad, bad corrosion . So bad, that the old linen line had to be "crumbled off" of it. I decided it would be a good candidate to show off the "vented spool".

I really like that spool, especially with todays thinner lines. Gives you the retrieve rate of the large diameter spool without the weight of all that extra line. Just like a large arbor fly reel.

Penn 85
Not a rare reel at all, but I’m wondering about the box. I have scoured Mikes books and google searched and I cant come up with any info. If anyone can help I would appreciate it.

These are common boxes from around the war and post war era. Penn used these mostly for the low priced reels. More common to find Model 14 and 15 in these styles. They were inferior as far as quality goes and had a difficult time surviving.

I guess, with a $4 price tag for the reel, you can't expect much in the way of  box ! Cheesy

A while back, I "attempted" to buy a Penn 15, on Ebay….the example I have has a cracked (and repaired" tail plate, and I thought the plate on the "Ebay" one looked pretty fair (in fact, it was the ONLY thing that looked "fair" about it Cheesy!). Anyway, I "won " it, and when it arrived....the seller had sent the "wrong" reel !!! Cry! It was an Ocean City(Which NOW lives in Australia !). I contacted the seller...he said, Keep the OC...it's not worth sending back, and I'll mail out the Penn, tomorrow. Well, "tomorrow" took quite a while, but, it did finally (after a bit of prodding) arrived. Yesterday, I decided to clean it up, and see just what was able to be saved.  And, after a cleaning...I've decided to put the whole thing on the shelf, and keep looking for a tail plate for my original !  It ain't pretty....but, it has great, great, free spool, and....I *may*have to fish it a bit !

I scored this one before i even got out of bed one morning last week. 1933 Long Beach. Has the Kuhn Jacob markings on both side plates.
The posts measure 2 1/8” so i think its a 65 size Long Beach
