So I picked up a couple 200's. I noticed one is about 1/4 wider than the other.  The thinner one is no numbers but the stand says 250 Yrs No 9.  What does the No 9 mean?  What do y'all think?

That's an old one.  Number 9 is the line size.  It would refer to twisted Irish linen line that has nine threads.  Each thread provides about three pounds of strength, so it would be equivalent to about 27 pound test.  That is wet strength.  The linen line diameter would be larger than 27 pound test monofilament or braided nylon (AKA surf squidding line).  It would be a lot more than 27 pound Spectra braid.  Just guessing, it may be as thick as 80 or 100 pound test Spectra.

A Surfmaster historian will be  along directly.

Interesting!  Thanks for the information.  Any idea why one is wider than the other?  Is that common with older reels?

 The one on the right is pre war era. Stamping yardage and line size on the seat was phased out in 1939/40
