    I got this reel at a garage sale for a 1.00. It doesn't have any markings and is rusty, but it still works. I really like the old wood handle and cool design. Does anyone recognize the reel? If you have any info please share.

      It is a beacon skeleton reel but it was made by a company named Bronson.

      You can see it here if you scroll down just a bit.
