Hi Dom,  Yes, that price of 27.50 made me stand up and look at it, for that reason.
          I do luv the 40's boxes and have a few more of these in various states of cleaning and repair at the minute.

  But I must admit Dom, I'm excited about another purchase, My first of these !!!.
Am doing a few minor repairs on the box as we speak, but I was quite excited to snare my first of these....

   It looks , to me, that you have a good system for bringing those boxes "back from the brink", and I'm anxious to see more of your work !  That's a nice Squidder, too !

Nice find, Col.  Love me some lighthouse boxes.  Only have 2 as well (6/0 & 12/0).
They are tough to find in decent shape, so it's nice to see you restoring them as I do.  Ray (Superhook) taught me his method. (sure miss that guy)
Keep at it... looking good from here.

 Tell me Darin, have you managed to give that tricked up Squidder a good thrashing yet ?.

Next Cab off the ranks, ( on a roll )

Is a 40's boxed Senator, one of the baby ones  Grin

Just re enforced the box a tad, gusseting the corners internally,
Now, the reels turn......  Was pleasantly surprised when stripping this one down, never seen this set up with the internal screws on to the post
and the reel seat, very interesting. The reel is partly numbered, so I'm guessing it could be a late 49, pricing indicates this, but maybe they used these boxes into the 1950's, dunno.... anyways, on with the soak I go......

The price puts the box used from 1946 to 1950. So this print style would fit into any of those years. Usually, if the reel's model name is printed on a slant, it is a 1940's box, but since this reel kept its price to 1950, this particular Senator 2/0 box is more than likely used up to and including 1950. nice find!

Thanks Mike,
                  I suppose because most parts on it are labelled, not all, the reel seat and the nut for the lever are un marked, that I figured
      more towards the late 40's or even 1950. It was interesting to see the drag was accessible from the outside, which I researched that they changed to internal drag access around 52-53 ish. 
    Another reel to learn from,  it doesn't stop with Penn, which I think makes it all the more interesting.

Cheers
