Gem level winder and old Shakespeare Reel F/S

Post by Len Sawisch »

Here is a beater combo that came in an old tackle box this weekend. The Gem (patented Sept 21, 1915) has tarnish and a few chips in the glass. The reel is a Shakespeare Universal Precision (1924) with a drilled foot. The click and thumb wheel drag work good and it spins well but there is brassing on the top of the head plate and back plate screws and other usual signs of wear and use. This ain't pretty except it look pretty neat, so somebody make me an offer or I'll put it up at that other place!

Thanks Milt

Milt,

I hope you mean Mike will bring the reel to the Michigan Outdoor Collectible show this weekend. I won't be there but Carl will and he's set to get the reel and the check - Thank You Very Much. Please don't tell people that when I have a reel I can't fix, I send it to you. I'm not sure that would be good for my reputation! The Gem, by the way, is at http://orcaonline.org/images/pixel.gif? ... %3AIT&rd=1
