I believe it is an interesting pflueger reel that never appeared in the catalogs. I also have one, but mine is 150 yard reel and has the "pflueger" foot on it.
I would like any unusual pflueger casting reels!

I agree with Robin. The "cap" on the gears is actually the face plate used for a number of Pflueger's small trade reels. Never let it be said the Pfluegers wasted anything!

In good condition it would be worth perhaps $40, but your reel has lost a lot of plating. Knob has lost all paint.Don't know about mechanical condition. My guess is $25-30. It is a very old Pflueger. Probably pre 1908.

Got a spare reel stamped "Pflueger" or a Montague Imperial?
