My father had collected reels for years and saved them for me as he was convinced they would be worth something when he died 2 years ago, alas I doubt it. There is a Leeds reel dated 1961, one that I used for years. Dad painted it black to stop the reflections! Other reels include Speedia centre pin, Ambidex, Abu 506 and 507, DAM, Mitchell 300’s etc.etc My favourite is probably the French Crac reel, top right in the green. It was probably the first closed face reel available and for it’s time was brilliant. Have a go at identifying them and I bet there is a chorus of “I had one of them”
If anyone knows the value of any of them or would want to buy one let me know.
