The Gillette reel pictures

Post by Jim Schottenham »

OK, so I'm a day behind in getting the picture up, but better late than never! Here she is!


The reel sold for $1250.00 before the 10% buyers premium and 5% MA sales tax. It was much better looking than this picture shows, and you could tell when you picked it up that it was a quality piece.
Look for coverage of the Lang's auction in the next reel news!

Not too bad for an item that sold for $1.50 or $3.00 back in 1911, and was simply a Montague reel attached to a handle. :lol:
