Nice reel !!!

What size is it ?

I have the same reel in a #3 and it looks larger than yours. Diameter is 2.25" with the pillars.

No number stamp. 2.25" pillar to pillar. Every now and then I have to take it out to get a reality check on old school quality.

Here's another that is stamped #5 with same foot parked next to a 150yd monte or us net twine.

lets see more

While were on the subject here's a couple of little guys that have me stumped. Any ideas? Hendrick/Star reel co, Malleson? I'm at a loss. Both are nicely made plated reels. Bearing caps may not be correct - I'm sure on the hard rubber reel because it was missing and had to make do with what I had lying around.

The bearing caps are correct. I have had an example of the reel with the hard rubber and it had the same bearing cap.
