This is a spam message. It was also sent to my email address. The reel is a junker. It has been painted, is not from the 1920s, and has a replacement crank knob.

When I get the exact same email sent to three different addresses that's spam.

Since the reel is not painted, then it must be brass. The plates and frame are a different color than the crank and other parts. The brass Fortescue came out in the late 1930s.

Out of thousands of reels listed on ebay, I happend to observe this excellent example.
I arrived at your board quite by accident and decided to point this fine piece out to you knowledgeable collectors.
I am in no way affiliated with the seller.
Just being helpful.
If the reel is so nice, stfu and buy it.

:( :? :P :roll: :wink: :!: :?: :type: jester usa ,oldman that reel at best may be used for salvage , it has been in or near salt water thats why the spool is in sad shape! Those hard ruber plates most likly have internal cracks, the handle cannot be placed on a decent reel and as its been salt water intruded its doubtful the mechanics are any good! I see the bearing caps as decent, $2.50 each. the free spool lever 41.50, the plates if not cracked at $3.50 each, the foot is subjective ! as for removing those screws well they most likly will break off at the heads and then will need to be drilled out! lets say the internal gears could be saved along with the bridge then as parts add another $3.75! And after its been striped out of parts set it out for BFI haul away! As for the bidder why does it make 3 bids? and as for the bidders feed back its been so long ago the bidder dosent even registor to reed their feed back! if you seen the reel why dont you buy it? and use it for a door stop!? because it wont work as a fishing reel with out a total rebuild! The seller needs to stick to his electronic items as I know nothing about those things! Your ohio conection on lake ERIE COL. MILTON LORENS aka SWIM JIG you may want to see what I do for a living! ha ha

:( :oops: :!: :type: usa I ment to say the FREE SPOOL leaver IS WORTH $1.50 not 41.50 I hit the wrong key! again the Free spool lever for salvage has a resale value of $1.50 I am getting tired! Col. milton lorens aka SWIM JIG on Lake ERIE total salvage worth at max is $17.25 for parts, and throw the rest out to BFI to go to the DUMP!

you should have sold it to them.

you really have made an ill-thought appearance on this board.
this is the place to learn about antique reels.

this is the last place you will find suckers.

The reel in this auction, that everyone is fighting about, is a 1932 Ocean City. The model name of this reel is the ""Brigantine"". It sold for $3.50 in 1932, was made from nickle plated brass and bakelite. Basically, one of Ocean City's low end reels. The handle on the reel for sale is wrong and may have been salvaged from a Ocean City Coast, Quaker or Cape City model of the same year. The value of the reel in question, in the condition it is in, is about $10. As we speak it has been bid to .99 with 3 days left. If you need some old parts it would be worth bidding it up a couple of dollars more. In itself, I would not pay anything for it unless I needed some parts from it.

well the first auction is over and the high bid was $4.24, a fair offer IMO. But this seller will not be fooled, he has relisted the reel::::::::::::::::::::

broken ... osi_widget


Well, anyone want to bite this "Buy It Now". I guess he does not believe us. :lol:

I am sorry I ended up pushing the bid up on this one. I noticed that there was one bidder, who had placed 3 bids on the reel...certainly the same oldman shiller "don't know the seller" and "not affiliated" BS'er. I figured he placed one bid low, one middle and one just short of his reserve. I figured I would get his hopes up, knowing no one in their right mind would actually go where he had his reserve set. The phone rang and I got side tracked and only placed one bid for $2.99...NOW FOR THE REAL NEWS...that seller offered me the reel on a second chance for my bid and I passed.

Although I have never witnessed a "Reel Tossing Contest", for some reason this reel brings it to mind.

from reading the listing, there is no question oldman and the seller are one in the same.

This guy really needs a first language.
