This reel is a "Presentation" version of the Pflueger Supreme reel. It was gold plated and presented to special people; U.S. Presidents on their inauguration, etc. This particular reel was given to my father, he was Pflueger's Chief Engineer for a number of years, on his retirement from the company a few years after it was purchased by Shakespeare.
I'm looking for some history on these "Presentation" reels, such as who may have received one, etc. I've contacted the current Pflueger Co., and they were no help. And, I'm also trying to find what the value of the reel may be.
