Found this beauty (Penn 85) in a box of reels that Ted sent me.  Grin
It's pristine and I love the mottled coloration!







Question for you guys...
I have this reel sitting in my office and pick it up to crank it and hear the dog ticking away.
One thing I noticed is that all the metal parts look different to me than on my other Penns.
On this reel, they don't look as "chrome", but more silver, like the color of my eating utensils at home.
Is it just me?  Huh?

   Those are the "tumbled" parts used on the budget models Chad. They weren't highly polished like the more traditional chrome parts you're used to seeing. They do have a more silvery appearance. Cool

I always liked it better also, more restrained I guess. Like the difference between an Audi RS5 and a Infiniti GTR, less flashy.

Here's some better pix of the 200. No part #'s visible.....no markings on the stand......hex click button. What do you suppose the age is ?

The ones with the hex clickers I have, date around 40-41.
  Not sure on that type of handle for that era, but it may have been swapped out at some stage.
But from what I have found/researched, that hex clicker dates to the early 40's...
Another way to try and narrow down the date, remove the line on the spool, see if the arbour on the spool is rounded, which dates to after the war, or if it has a kinda ridge in the corner,, that would date it as pre war.
I have a boxed 200, with the spool arbour rounded, price on the box would make it 1946 on...
I'm sure someone else may have more detail...
Nice find...

Yeah, I know this isn't the correct handle, and I've been "resisting" pulling the line...or any other "reel work", for that matter...I have WAY too much "real work", outside in the gardens, right now .

Rained today , so, I removed the line to check the spool, and I'm assuming it's the "older" version, as it has the same look as the prewar 49 spool

Hi Crow,
Nice find - That hex clicker dates it at 1941.
The correct handle for that reel  should have that late 1941 -1946 style smooth(no coin edge, no rings) counterweight, as seen on LB60's, Delmars, and Seagates from that era. The handle of my hex clicker SM200 has a dark brown, faux wood appearance.
Hope that helps!!

Take care out there

Hi Crow,
          Yep, that spool, as Martin said, is Pre war, so the hex clicker makes it 41.
       Great find Sir !!.
     Should be easy enough to find the correct handle, then you have a pretty cool correct reel....
   It's funny how a whole lot of little characteristics make it from a particular year. I mean these reels probably had parts swapped due to a breakage maybe or a mishap, which can confuse the heck out of trying to date the things. But that early spool certainly narrows things down...
