If you need any parts Chris, lemme know. I have a Sailfisher sans tail-plate (ring is there though) and handle. Hmmm, gonna have to remove that strange flat-sided line and see what kinda spool it has...

Most pre-war Senators used German Silver as their base metal. If you remove the chrome and polish them, very antique looks happens to your Penn. Your Penn may take on the identity of a Cozzone Squidder instead of a Penn Squidder.

yep. it needs a new handle side plate

wondering what caused that kind of damage, hopefully the spool is not bent or it will be an expesive project  Undecided
but I first need the handle side plate to check that spool

Sometimes you can see wobble by rolling the spool on a table.

Just as You find them !
I have a stable of 5-6 senators,  all 4/0 and 6/0's which are my go to reels.
But have picked up this 4/0 black sided LH reel.
Looks as though the line has been on for decades, reel has been covered in a sticky gunk all over,
There's quite a bit of Green and corrosion everywhere, but a nice wee project.
I luv Senators, some of your guy's photo's have had me drawling !
SO, I also managed to secure my first 1st generation 12/0, in pretty nice condition, will post a photo when it arrives,
But for now, the here's a pic of the 4/0 LH reel.

Thanks Darin,
                    There's a fair bit of corrosion on this one, the photo doesn't really show it, So I'm not sure what I'll end up doing with it
  till I see how it cleans up. I have no Idea of the age, I wont fish with it, so I'll probably shelve this one. Is it like the pre war vintage ones,
as far as, leave it alone how it comes out after a clean ?.  It's got part numbers so it's post 50's, so would parts be available or interchangeable so I have the option of prettying it up ?, or just clean and shelve ?
