I have a few Penn Reels i recently acquired and have now become fascinated with
these simple yet awesome reels.  I am trying to approximate the age of two of them;.
I have two 114's, one being a 114H. I have looked all over them for a number that
would supply information on their date of manufacture, with no luck. I have read that
there are numbers on the inside of the bakelite sides but haven't looked yet. I have also
read that the handle colors and styles can provide info on aging them.  I have attached
some photo's of the two reels. Any information would be appreciated !!
The pics are number Reel 1 (114) and Reel 2 (114H)

Me too.

It looks like the handle side sideplate is not the same vintage as the reel.

On which reel? One has black Side plates (114) and I didn't get a great pic of either side and
the other has maroon side plates (114H).

Ah, more than one reel, disregard.  My old eyes and computer caused me to see black sideplates on the first and last photos, only black on the first one.

The maroon plated H model is probably from the mid to late 60's if everything is original. Not enough info for the 6/0.       Rudy

Couple of keys on the 114: that spool, and the counterbalanced green knob handle, date it as pretty dang old and in good shape for a vintage I would place at least in the 50's, and maybe older....can you advise if you see any numbers on any of the parts- handle blade, reel stand, drag star, that you can make out without taking the thing apart.

Someone will be along with a much keener eye than me for these things- Mike, Dom, Ted, Chris and others....

You do know "work" is a four letter word and gets in the way of fishing, but income pays for fishing.
