Vintage IMMEC 22-P FISHING REEL Deep Sea Big Game, Line

Vintage IMMEC 22-P FISHING REEL Deep Sea Big Game, Line - eBay (item 310011849938 end time Jan-07-08 20:35:24 PST)

Do you like old deep sea fishing reels?

This vintage Immec 22-P fishing reel is marked on the base, "Made in Japan 2902." It looks rather complicated with a button on one side, a lever and that star shape on the other. It has heavy line on it for deep sea fishing.

The dark finish is very nice, no scratches or scrapes. There's minor wear on the metal finish on the crank and the lever.

The long lever controls whether the line feeds or not. The crank clicks when you run it one way and locks when you try to turn it the other way. I don't see what the button on the left controls, but I bet you do.

This vintage folding opera glass is silver-toned with tan faux-leather. They open like a compact and the big lenses pop upright, ready for viewing the singers in action. The side where to look through them is marked, "Coated Lens 2.5X Made in Japan." Between the big lenses is "GHI."

The box graphic shows the opera glass with a different power notation. The graphic is a black and white photo on a red background with some red surface missing where a tag used to be. The box is marked, "Folding Opera Glass 2.5X Coated Lens."

Do you like old hood ornaments?

This vintage chrome jet airplane hood ornament once graced a car, but I don't know what make or model. Inside it's marked BM-16850-A.

The wings have pitting on both top and bottom. The screws and nuts are here, ready to be mounted. If you know how to shine it up, you're good to go.

Does this vintage jet plane hood ornament make you smile?
