Penn Seaford: 4 posts, German Silver, hex nut on the handle, and no stamp on the reel foot. Iím thinking 1934.  Iím pretty happy with this vintage Goodwill find  Grin

Neat old piece, especially for a Goodwill.

My wife goes to Goodwill 2-3 times a week, I tell her to keep an eye open for any fishing stuff. To date she has never brought any rods, reels, or tackle home. We do however have a growing vintage cookware collection.

Nice find indeed! Very early model, I'll let the experts tell the actual circa. So how much $$$ did it run ya?

I thought the Ď33 was the 3 pillar with the rounded clicker and in Ď34 the design shifted to 4 posts, waffle clicker, and hex nut  Huh?  Either way, itís my earliest Penn and only cost me $20  Cool

Nice find right there for sure Jason.

4 post began in 34 for all the Penn models and changed over to the Hex spool bearing on the head plate, would be nice to find one with the round spool bearing from 33, I've always been on the lookout for a 34 model with that round one, It would have been left over parts from 33, which happened all the time with model changes, I digress !!.

Careful though Jason,,,,, Collecting these older ones becomes obsessive    Grin

 Nice save !! Just imagine how many people would recognize this reel as one that should be shelved in a collection. 99.9% of people buying from goodwill would be taking this reel fishing. So happy to see it found the right home where it will be appreciated and never to be fished again now that it's officially entered into the collector realm

 I know of 1 model k that unknowing owner gifted to a father/son and even loaded it with line. Yep, they were going fishing with it not knowing it's historical significance or extremely high $$$ value

Nice find. It could be a 1934 reel. Has all the signs. You are correct about the three post model being a 1933. Sometime I feel the 1934 model is harder to find than the 1933 model.
