Someone got themselves a 1933 Long Beach today. They beat me at it. I hope it was someone here! It sold with another oldie Long Beach for $240 for the two

That listing surprised me, it sat all week, so I thought it would be a sleeper; but, it woke up at the end. I was not bidding on; but, a friend of mine was and he did not win. The winner had to be a deep pockets guy. it was a nice reel. The 33LB I mean.

I have an old Long Beach 60, square edged plates, no part numbers on any parts, etc.  However, this reel has a black headplate and a brown and black speckled tailplate.  Could it have left the Penn factory like this, or did someone else replace one of the original plates?

Too bad, I would have paid good money for the catalog if you threw the reel in for free. Roll Eyes

George, two possibilities, as I see it, and Mike will probably be along soon to correct me. Either it was a special order for a rental outfit that wanted to be able to recognize their reels at a glance, or it was a replacement (no telling which side was the original, but when a clicker wore out in the old days the only solution was to replace the tail plate). I'd more easily believe the latter explanation. Let's see what Mike has to say.

Trying to explain why a Mottled tail plate is on a reel is impossible. Either of Sid's explanation may be true or it could be a End of Day reel that came out of the plant that way. Unlikely a rental, the rental reels were more weird than that.

I agree with Mike, the few rental reels I've seen were about as weird as they come.....just like me  Cheesy Cheesy

Weird maybe, but definitely beautiful! Who would ever want to cover up that spool with line?  Shocked

Weird people attract weird reels, maybe, but damn that reel is a cool one.  Loving the electric green handle and that the spotted plate matches that orange spool. That reel has a lot going for it.
Neat piece, Ted

I'm with Dom on the "beautiful" descriptor for that reel. I've been eyeing it in your avatar for months now, Ted. It looks even better with that spool, too!
