For sale here is a Otto Zwarg Model 600 reel - size 4/0. (St. Petersburg). What makes this reel unique is the history behind it. The reel was gifted to NBC TV personality Jerry Lester, star of the late night TV show "Broadway Open House", the forerunner of "The Tonight Show". The reel is in excellent condition with only a few hairline scratches in the ebonite plates. No chips or cracks in the reel. Also included is the original leather case with Lester's initials, "JL". The case is in excellent condition as well. The Zwarg catalog I have notes the capacity as "300 yards No. 15 or 200 yards No. 21 Linen Line". Reel diameter is 3 7/8" and the spool width is 2 1/8". The reel weighs 31 ounces.
We ship at cost to the buyer and in the majority of cases do so via UPS with full insurance and signature. There are cheaper options but our experience has been that you get what you pay for and that it's not worth taking risks when shipping what are often one-of-a-kind items. Your shipping estimate will be calculated at checkout and if you have any questions please contact us. Please note the buyers are responsible for any applicable import duties or fees that may levied. Due to the importance of packing items carefully please allow up to two weeks for arrival (depending on how busy we are) though we certainly do our best to get items to you as expeditiously as possible.
Unless otherwise noted, all items come with a 3-day inspection period during which they can be returned to us for a full refund (provided that they are in the same condition in which they left our shop). Return shipping is the responsibility of the buyer. If an item is returned, we will issue a refund within 10 days upon receipt. Refunds will be either administered by providing a check or, when possible, by canceling a credit card purchase.
