Unmarked and Unknown New York Style Fishing Reels

Unmarked and Unknown New York & UK Style Fishing Reels

Unmarked and Unknown

Some vintage antique reels are unmarked and it is unknown who made them. Any help in identifying the maker of these reels would be appreciated. New York style refers to characteristics seen on reels made in New York before the turn of the 20th century. This includes a crank handle with a round ball counterweight, sliding flip up oil port covers and an offset foot to move the reel closer to the caster's thumb. Sometimes these reels had thick S-shaped handles rather than ball handles. Back in the Victorian times when these reels were made, it was sometimes customary to have the owner's name engraved on the reel. These engraved owners' names are not to be confused with the name of the person or business that made the reel. Doing the research to identify these reels makes an interesting hobby.
