Nice start, I don't see the Salt Water versions yet. The Tyler family was one of the early prominent families and landowners in Louisville/Jefferson County. I wonder if this is the Robert Tyler of the reel. Did you do any research?

It’s great that you could reunite all these reels in one collection. Groupings like that are the best way to study a reel maker’s technique.
