I saw it and I do not think that is a plastic spool.

   I zoomed on the pics and you can see corrosion on it.

I saw it as well, and passed only because I have a few already.  It was priced fairly well, so I don't think your girl did to bad.  It should clean up nicely.
That being said, if the spool has a "coating" of some kind on it that can't be removed then it'll cost ya a few bucks for original. I suspect it will clean up and is just superficial.
The reel is a 40's model for sure.  Mo, is correct, the corrosion is there so it's not a plastic spool.
Take some before and after photos... I think that reel will look completely different if you can put the "Mo Treatment" on it. Wink

It looks like Mo is getting the "Mo Treatment" reputation.  Way to go Mo.  Dominick

   The "Mo Treatment"...hee hee...good one fellas! I think Dom is right though, this reel has the potential to look very good. Maybe some less corroded posts, and hit the rings and stand with Brasso. Polishing with Brasso makes those little yellow spots look more silvery...it can really help the appearance. Cool

He's the best, but there seems to be a lot of nuance to the Mo Treatment.  Now if he would explain how he lights his photos.

   I wish it was a more complex secret lighting Steve, it would add to my "guru" image. Unfortunately, like many of my other techniques, it's dumbfoundingly simple: Four 60 watt bulbs in the ceiling fan and the window blind opened. Cool

Your girlfriend??? Does she collect or is it a Christmas present for someone she knows who does?  Roll Eyes So Benni, let us know the scoop on that spool.

I thought for sure Chris had bought it, lol.

Hey Mo, he looks just like you.  Grin

The seller must've been a professional photographer cause he didn't put a spotlight on that brassing like you have.
Get that line off, clean that spool up and show us.  Looks unplated from here, and hope the spool under the line looks as good as the visible portion of the spool.
Clean her up and see what ya got.

 I've had similar spools from this era, and they have some kind of thin clear coating on the spool. It seems to keep most the corrosion from happening
