I see the very same people that complain about my hobbie. They go to the casino and drop a 1000.00 dollars and dont blink a eye. Then buy lotto tickets on the way home. They are ignorant not to notice their own habits.

Seems like the more reels and NOS parts I try to get rid of -- the more the remaining stuff multiplies.

That's interesting. Are your reels mating?

We have a company here in California, called See's Candy...

This is my wife's favorite -- for special occasions such as Christmas or Easter.

One of our regulars sends us a box of Sees Candy for Christmas every year. I have only a few pieces left, lol. I make them last. Love it.

   I just googled "See's Candy" and was surprised to see locations right here in Columbus and Cincinnati! Hmm...it appears I've been enlightened again!  Cool

 I love See's chocolates too !!!

 .....back on topic.... Rare or prototype Penn's are in a whole nother category of collecting, and in most cases takes extreme amount of knowledge to be able to recognize the non typical reels.

  Typical of most passionate collectors of any sort is not to seek the rarest, but the best examples of more common items. Then along the way some rare items will likely come along. The search for the finest survivors is a more viable position from a closet collector standpoint.

  Sometimes you gotta roll the dice buying ancient reels, but every so often the old leadcore line comes off to reveal a true survivor

 Yes Andy, a 149 from around 1950. The seat has no part number, but other parts do and this reel is all original from estate of original owner. The vented spools are not that uncommon, but seldomely found in "shelfie" condition IMHO

That is so true Ted. I would say that is the nicest vented spool I have ever seen. Most of then are corroded.

 The 149 is very common....and 49 is more common than 149

 The uncommon thing about this 149 is the condition of the vented spool that was only around for a few short years in early 1950's
