Bronson Silver Princess No. 3700

Post by trapple54 »

I am currently helping a friend sell some of her vintage fishing reels. I say her but the reels were her husband's whom past away a couple years ago. His name was Gerald (Jerry) Touslee and I think he was member of ORCA at one time. The Bronson Silver Princess No. 3700 is probably her oldest reel. Trying to determine the value and any tips on where to sell it (other than Ebay auction). Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Providing photos here would certainly help in determining value, as condition means everything in this case.

Welcome Trapple54. For more info on valuing reels, see this post viewtopic.php?f=1&t=23910
Any valuation or sale will require photos. If you have a phone, shoot a photo or two of every reel and upload them to one of the cloud drives and provide the link to the folder. Or feel free to use the Reel Talk photo upload feature, just read the instructions first.

You can certainly sell them here if you choose.

I am moving this post into the For Sale or Trade forum.

I fixed up your image links to show automatically in the post. Age of a reel is a small factor in value. There are newer reels that may be worth much more. Age, rarity, condition, desirability, beauty, type, and many more factors come into play. In my opinion, this particular reel would be valued in the $20 range.

I'm going to be a little more generous as far as value goes. Maybe $40 on a good day.

Thanks again for the feedback. I checked Ebay Completed items and found the same reel and it auctioned for $227.50 on April 25th of this year. I was quite surprised to say the least.

Condition, condition and condition. That's the difference in this case.
