I consider myself lucky to have gotten this reel but my wife was not so happy. This Zebco was manufactured on 13 may, 1949 till 31 Dec, 1949 by the Zero Hour Bomb Company. The reel is in good shape and works very smoothly. I plan to fish with it at least once this summer just to be able to say I fished with Zebco's first reel. I have a Zebco rod to put the reel on. Also, this reel was being built on my birthday, same year.
