 The book only goes up to 1959.

 The same author (Charles Horne) wrote a 2nd book that is a continuation of the first book. Title is "Game Fishing Transformed"

Sid, check Mike's Chronological History at page 179.  According to Mike it is hard to pin down but he says "sometime in the early 1950s."  Dominick

Thanks, Dominick. That's what I thought, but I'm at work and the book is at home. I'm told that there are some 49As with non-numbered parts, so that puts the release to at least as far back as 1950(~ish, maybe 49 parts didn't disappear from the bins as quickly as the other parts used for multiple reels and the non-numbered parts lasted into '51 or '52).

The 49A uses a jigmaster 500 seat and posts

Then the 49A couldn't have appeared in the early 50's, as the Jigmaster didn't appear until 1958-59, and I doubt the 500A preceded the 500 (maybe that isn't right?).

D'oh, they started with a Squidder stand, not a Jigmaster stand - I should've gone directly to where Dominick told me to look - I didn't - I thought he meant the chapter in the green book on the Mariner reels - and it didn't have the same information.... mystery solved....

 The long beach 67 also has the same stand and was around before the 49a..... I just used jigmaster as a reference because more people are familiar with that reel.

 Dominick, you very wise grasshopper.

Chapter 13 in The Penn Collector's Companion and Price Guide is devoted to the South African big game from shore fishery.

 Very nice. You are now the proud owner of a piece of south African shore fishing folklore !!

 The wide 49 is built like a mini 14/0 without the harness lugs. No wonder it did the job it was designed to do

Ted,
The 49A arrived today and I am smiling, the old girl is already on the top shelf with the box next to the Bean 249! Thanks again for the 9/0 unnumbered  handle nut..Still looking for the correct handle.
Strangest thing though, it looks like the postal inspectors opened the big box up then filled the 49A box with a couple of jars of home canned salmon just like you'd catch out there on the left coast.......imagine that!!
Tight Lines,
Bob

 Well Bob, I don't like leaving unused space in a flat rate box..... By the way, it's albacore but you can call it anything you wish !!

 Thanks to AC49 for hooking us up with reels from South Africa !!
