REEL MARKINGS: The head plate reads: FORTESCUE FREE SPOOL GERMAN SILVER OCEAN CITY MFG. CO. PHILA. The foot plate is stamped: 250. The exact age is unknown but known to be an old classic. "FORTESCUE" REEL CONDITION: The plates measure aprox. 3-1/4" in diameter. The pillars are 1-13/16" wide. The clicker works and sounds off as designed with a stout firm commanding louder click. The spool spins smooth and a little tight or stiff with click on, but consistent and good. With clicker off the spool spins free and easy! The FREE SPOOL works as designed. Noting now the bent areas on the tail plate. See the photos of the slightly bent areas on the tail plate. This has no real affect on the reel operation. The head plate was mounted slightly off center back in the day by some previous owner who may have also cleaned it. This is a very fine looking old "Fortescue" if we don't mind saying! No serious deep scratches or nicks are seen on the head plate although the plate does show it's age and wear. Much of the wear on this is microscopic as the reel does have multiple nicks/scratches but most are seen with a 10x jewelers glass. This one has masking tape residue on the tail plate and the tail plate displays with more wear and aging. Note the nicking on the tail plate. The inside rims are slightly soiled. The handle and handle knob are in good used aged condition. The big black knob has lost some paint and has some wear nicking at the crown of the knob. No cracks or hairlines found. Overall this is a very good reel that does look like it's had some work done on it!
