Kiest cans, as well as boxes, were sold in large quantities at recent auctions, dropping the prices slightly over the past few months. The cans were offered in a few different colors, and different colored labels as well. The older cans did not have a "rolled" lid, as the red can in this photo has. I've seen quite a few for sale since the big auction find, but complete package prices seem to be steady around $175 to $225 in excellent condition.

Thanks for all the help with this Kiest reel

The Reel is forsale or trade

I am not into it for a great deal, so a reasonable cost will take it.
