Cool! No part #'s, screw on the E. Lever, smooth counter weight, that style a lettering, the knob type. I'm interested to know, but I'd guess late 30's.

   The 3/0 was introduced in '42...and since there's no numbers on the parts that puts your 3/0 between '42 and '50. That handle is one you'll see a lot on Long Beaches and Sea Gates from that era...not sure about it. I seem to want to think the correct handle for that reel would have a coin edge. Mike would know...maybe he'll see this. Great reel! Cool

 The 3/0 was designed with unique parts, some that didn't interchange with any other reel. The spool and seat are unique to just the black 3/0. Drilled arbor changed to a post in 1941/42.....my guess is this 3/0 is 1942 or 1946....I'm leaning more towards 1942 and even finding a well used pre 1950 3/0 is a tall order.....unless your name happens to be Chris  Wink  Wink

Chris,
I got a 49 that had the same style smooth counterweight, and was advised that it was an in between time from the coin edge and laminated coin weights.

Here she is, it just came off the boat a few days ago, as it's about time for me to abandon soon to be snowy New England for sunny Florida.  I set up 3 49's last fall with wire, fresh carbontex 3 stacks, and the Boss's suggestion of a 113 carbontex under the gear.  Performed beautifully all season, and with the fast retrieve very efficient.  The most fun was the "What the Hell's" from younger guys around the marina when the 49's came out of the cabin, the knuckle buster lever was a thing of wonderment.  Explained to them the age of the reel with the no part numbers, and how that after 70 years I reckoned this one was just about broken in, and that I expected it be worn out in maybe another 70 or so.

I posted about the handle last fall and I think it was Max that talked about the changeover thing.
