I got this 6/0 package recently. Box price indicates 1946-1949.
The weird thing is that the reel is partially numbered. I have an identical 6/0 in the identical box without any numbers. Im wondering if this could be a mismatch or if it could be one of the last lighthouse boxes to leave the factory with a partially numbered reel??? Someone hand wrote a date of 7/13/50 in the white circle just above the light. Purchase date maybe???

I feel the part numbered parts were first used on Senators. Your reel could be one of those early reels that mixed numbered and non-numbered parts, even at a 1949 date. The 1949 catalog did have a illustrated parts list near the end of the catalog, so some stamped parts could have been around at that time. Unfortunately, there is no one left at Penn from that time period to ask about this. I would tend to think your reel is correct for the box.

I picked up this pair of sail fishers. They are a little beat but the price was right and I believe the one with red handle has a 3 piece spool and I believe is a first year.

Nice ! I wasn't aware there were "other" spools used on these. I have one I "went through", but haven't fished yet...maybe this winter !!

I have one. A great trolling reel. Gear ratio pretty low, but mine rolls in 26" of line/turn with that big ol' spool. Lots of unique parts,specific only to this reel.

 Yep, 1953 was introductory year for the 130 sailfisher, and had the 3 piece spool. 1954 was the year when Penn introduced heavy cast bronze spools on the 130 and also on the larger senators

I recall reading, and have it in my notes, that the 3 piece was gone by 56, was that bad info or did the whole line change over to the cast brass take a few years to finish off?
Thanks

Well my friend, I suspect you have done a lot of learning on your own. Whatever I added makes me happy.

Happy Holiday!
