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

The 1933 Long Beach is always a special treat to come across. I know they pop up when you are not expecting them to. To truly understand how unusual a find they are, you have to experience the difficulty of finding one when you go out to specifically look for one. These reels were fished hard and finding survivors is not easy. I am impressed.

Hi All,
       Yep, that is an absolute beauty Chris, Wow   great find.
 I just got an early 249, which I was stoked about, doesn't have the waffle clicker, but pretty sure it's Pre war, just cleaning her up,
But, certainly not in the Longbeach class, what you found, great score......

Well, as mentioned, slow on reels of late, been hard at it refitting my boat project,
 But managed to score a crusty old 249 deep sea reel. After a good soaking and clean, it's come up really well.
There's a bit of patina on the posts, but the side plates are near perfect, with a broken screw to remove out of the stand at a later date,
It came up great.  This is my first of the deep sea reels and I must say, I kinda like them, simplicity at it's best and The brown spool is a first for me.
Not sure of it's age, It doesn't have the waffle clicker, but it will sit nicely with with other pre war reels on the shelf....

Looks great !  Those old, narrow "tall" ones are quite "addictive", to me, as well !!

Hi All

This Penn 14/0 just arrived in the mail. We don't see that many of the bigger Senators this side. Nothing vintage here but seems in good nick so I had to have. Any details on age would be appreciated as I know there are plenty Senator experts here. The guy tossed the box and catalog years ago  Shocked

Regards

The Cuttyhunk (twisted linen) line is likely pre-war but the stand has a part number.

 Thats a pretty one!
Can you reel that line onto another real long enough to clean and inspect the spool and take pictures?

 Nice 14/0 !!

 The logo under the eccentric is 1950's. The deep red color of the knob has early 50's written all over it.....and as Steve mentioned, the cuttyhunk line suggests that early to mid 50's reel. In my opinion, the finest chrome plating was during this era.

 Whoever owned it didn't fish much. Definitely a good score !!
