My father in law gave me this reel and I know absolutely nothing about vintage reels. It looks like it has never been uses and has all original components. It is stamped "No. 1970 President by Shakespeare Stainless Steel Model GD" Any help? Thanks in advance.

Looks like it's in good condition. I have a vintage reel price book, but it's at my house in Houston and I'm in SA. If I were you, I would stop by a Borders Book store and look it up in a price guide.

Cool. You might want to give Johnny Smith down in San Leon a call. He is the 'real old man or old reel man' as Bob jr. always called him. I don't have his number handy but you can call the 18th St. Pier (281-339-2600) and if he isn't there I'm sure they'll give you his number. If that doesn't work call Capt. Wayne in the morning and he'll have the number. For that matter Capt. Wayne knows a whole bunch about vintage reels also.
