Before you use either one of those reels, be sure to check the drag systems. A good dis-assembly and clean and lub would be in order also. With care, those reals will last several life times. They look like Penn reels. Very good reels.

left is a Penn , right I believe is a Pfluger . My dad had one when he was a kid . Check from the 40 -60's . The oddest real I had was a reel my grandpa made , MADE , in the mide to late 20's after the family moved to Cal from Ohio . No pics . Your drag was a piece of leather that you applied thumb pressure to the spool . And the handle was attached directly to to spool . Andy

Yes your both right. The left one is a Penn delmar 285 and left is a Pflueger Capitol 1989.Zippy I am really impressed you knew it was a pflueger :hellohello9il: . I know nothing about deep sea reels.

Don't discount the value of the old lures. If they are in the original boxes they can be really valuable. A friend gave me an old tackle box that belonged to his dad back in the 30s. Inside I found six old lures in great condition in the original boxes. I sold them to a collector for enough to purchase two electric Scotty downriggers for our salmon boat.

My Gradpa moved to Inglewood ( waaayy before LAX , forget the name ??? field ) and we have pics of them all over Santa Monica bay with Halibut , Yellowtail , Bass . We can date the pics too as when there is no house , it was pre 26' . With the house , after 26 . He moved there built the garage to live in , built a few houses in the hood & then built his / our house in 26 . I wish I still had the reel he made from scratch . It was pretty cool . My dad said he had to miss school to fish sometimes . Thats what they did for food . Andy

If those old lures are sealed do not open them they are worth more if un opened.. Cool stuff. I will keep the reels at my place so you do not mess them up. :smiley-funny-post-sign:

I have collected old reels and old tackle for years . The Pflueger Capitol in that condition wich is poor is worth 10- 15 bucks the Penn Delmar is worth the same. Both reels need to be retired . As for tackle the feathers and other other jig are tuna trolling rigs the iron looks like a 6x tady salas $7.00that hand line could be worth some dough is there a mfg mark on it ?
