I'm working on a post war Surfmaster 100 and it has an aluminum spool that does not look like a Penn spool.  Inside each flange there is  "CN" over 6 dots and below that mark is 3 more dots. Could this be a Carl Newell spool?  The rest of the reel is stock, stand and bars.....thanks Bill

It may not be very productive,
but it's sure going to be interesting!

CN stands for Carl Newell, really nice spool.

The fins are the big giveaway. They act as a cast control.     Rudy
