It is a 6/0 size just like the more common 621 models that you will see on eBay rarely but I do not know the model number of this reel. If you are reading this you probably already know more about these reels than I do but for those that don't I can tell you these were only for the well off angler because you could have bought a good used car for less than this reel cost back in the day. I could not find any flaws in this reel other than the altering of the foot which was not the best attempt at that that I have ever seen. The plates are free of cracks and chips. There are some very minor marks to the the plates that you could call scratches but they will all buff out I believe.There is a leather thumb drag which I do not know if it was made by EVH or another company. Shipping in the USA will be insured and shipped by Priority Mail. Shipping to other countries will be by USPS Priority Mail with insurance. Thank you for looking.

This reel is serial number L441. Which dates it to 1919, according to Bingham's book on vom Hofe. It is in good or better condition, could use a good cleaning, especially on the spool.

NO RESERVE AUCTION Disclaimer: I am not an absolute expert on these reels. I have done a lot of research and have made some educated guesses based on what I have found. If you have questions please ask and I will certainly answer to the best of my ability. Unfortunately the maker is not around to verify every detail about the reel. I did take this reel apart to inspect the innards. Everything is as pictured with the exception that I added some high quality lube. This reel is ready to use. Add a little gear oil in the oil port is the only maintenance you will need. You are bidding on an early rare find. A 1900's Edward Vom Hofe model 471 size 4/0 from what I can decipher. Brown hard rubber reels sides, with the inscription of the previous owner. Looks like Capt. E.J. Rose. Reel winds smooth as silk. Drag works as it should, can slide down ... moreto disengage and back up to engage. Twist the knob and drag increases. It does appear to have a line burn on the front cross member. The insides looked pretty clean, there was some solder on the gear bridge, I assume that the crank was originally pressed in and over the years maybe pulled out, I don't know. Maybe that was original, but seems more likely a repair. Everything was structurally sound though. There appears to have a slight crack where the spindle sits. The spindle has a very small play in it but I don't think that has anything to do with the crack and there is no interference when I put pressure on the spindle and wind. Reel foot appears to have been filed down at some point in its life. Again this reel has been used, and my goal is to put it back in the hands of someone who will continue to use it. This reel still has a lot of life left in it. Overall measurements of the reel face is 3 7/8" diameter by 2 1/2" across. Based on some other pictures and details from catalogs I am thinking this is a very early production run. A few key things that make me think this: Reel crank screws off by rotating counterclockwise. Later models held in with screw,

This is a relatively scarce Julius Vom Hofe B Ocean in the 9/0 size. The reel is german silver/hard rubber and is in near Ex condition from both an appearance and mechanical viewpoint. Bottom of foot is marked 9/0 and also marked B379 on cross bar of the foot. The appearance deficiencies on the reel are mainly the wear around the hard rubber at the screw heads. This is not something easily seen unless you take out the screws. The 6th pic I posted shows this problem since it's most easily seen from the bottom of the foot. Secondly. The tail plate of the reel was polished by a previous owner and has somewhat more luster than does the face plate.Lastly I see some wear on some of the cross bars. From a mechanical view point, the clicker is very weak but clutch functions and reel operates smoothly. I think the reel is quite beautiful-overall-but ... moreit's not mint condition and I couldn't even call it Ex. But it's close to Ex. Please take a look at my other auctions for other tough.

This is an Edward Vom Hofe salmon reel that I do not feel especially knowledgeable about. I know that the foot has been shortened and the handle is a replacement. I believe the foot is aluminum and the handle is german silver. I'm not certain about the handle but it has a small amount of patina. I bought this reel at auction and have owned it for many years. But it's never been out of my display cabinet. The bottom of the foot is marked 504 and 3/0/ The reel measures approximately 3 1/2" in diameter and is the spool is 1 1/2" wide(measured inside to inside) To the best of my knowledge the reel is in good operating condition. If you have any particular questions, please contact me. I will also furnish additional pics upon request. Please take a look at my other auctions for other tough. Unusual or rare reels that I will offer ... moreover the next few months. Thanks. On Feb-16-13 at 14:41:26 PST. Seller added the following information: If you are high bidder on this reel and aren't satisfied with it for any reason. It's o.k. to return. No questions asked. Thanks. On Feb-20-13 at 12:21:40 PST. Seller added the following information: I've had several people ask me about the lever on the front of the reel. The following is what I know about it. The lever and wire were on the reel when I got it and appear to act as a brake system. When the lever is in the forward position. The handle will not turn in reverse any further than the"catch" on the end of the wire. When the lever is shifted to the down position, the wire will no longer engage the handle when the handle is turning backward. Of course the drag engages whether the lever is up or down. But when its up and the handle starts backward, it comes to a halt when it hits the catch on the end of the wire. To me. The reel is operating exactly the way the original owner intended it to operate. When I listed the reel I didn't know whether there was one or one hundred reels out there having this lever/wire device on the face plate. Whoev

This is a very seldom seen Julius Vom Hofe brass reel which is pre-patent and which has the clover-leaf logo trade mark. This is a somewhat small reel that measures approximately 2& 1/8" in diameter and approximately 1& 7/8" in width. Measured outside to outside. The foot does not appear to have been shortened but still shows a bit of damage. I cleaned the bottom of the foot lightly in an effort to assess the damage and can't tell you any more than what the pics show. Please feel free to ask questions or ask for more pics if you like. Please take a look at my other auctions for other tough. Unusual or rare reels that I will offer over the next few months. Thanks.

A size#2 Black Bass Casting reel with all hard rubber side plates. Model 454(the model 464 had protective nickel silver safety rims) This"un-banded" version of the later named Regal reel was gone from the catalogs by 1911 according to the book written by the late Ted Bingham, The Celebrated reels of Edward Vom Hofe. This example. With a 2 3/4" diameter and 1 1/4" wide spool is in excellent overall condition, and would grade better if not for the sun faded- though uniform in color- side plates. Those collectors that know how to bring back the original black coloration to the hard rubber will have themselves a great looking reel(its not bad now) The sliding oil caps have markings"Edw. Vom Hofe- Maker- Fulton St. NY" on the head plate side, and"Edw. Vom Hofe- NY- Pat Jan. 23, 83" on the tail plate side. ... moreThe fine knurling on this reel is terrific- no marring or digs, and with a crisp and loud click when the switch is on, and very smooth running spool, make this an excellent mechanical example as well. The size#2 leather reel case has the Edw. Vom Hofe- Maker stamp on the bottom, and is in really nice shape- no broken straps or old repairs. A really nice combo for the bass fishing collector. I'll gladly combine shipping with any of the other reels I have listed this week. No reserves!
A size#1 Black Bass Casting reel with all hard rubber side plates. Model 464 with protective nickel silver safety rims.

Vom Hofe- NY- Pat Jan. 23, 83" on the tail plate side. This size#1 example, with a 3" diameter and 1 1/4" wide spool is in excellent minus overall condition(the side plates are a bit darker than the photos show) with personalized head plate inscription reading"Chas. A. Hess" The size#1 reels were introduced in 1907. With no chips or cracks to the hard rubber, and only light superficial scratches, this is a great free turning reel with very loud and clear click when the switch is on. I'll gladly combine shipping ... morewith any of the other reels I have listed this week. No reserves!

NO RESERVE AUCTION with Buy it Now You are bidding on a vintage 1970's Orvis Umpqua Reel anti-reverse RIGHT HAND WIND ONLY. This classic look has been taken from Vom Hofe and refined by the Hardy Cascapedia and now shows up in the Orvis reel. Perfect for your bamboo rod. The reel comes with 200 yds of 20 lb backing and 30 yds of WF9F. I am assuming the line is original. But looks fine to use as is. I have some research that this was built by Hart for Orvis, and that there were only 500 made, however, I can not confirm the 500 number. I am assuming that is where the number U302 came from Umpqua number 302 of 500. I have attached the Fireside Angler catalogue picture that describes and depicts this reel. It was sold in the 70's for $190 and the block leather case alone is worth at least $100 now. Also included are 2 spare cork drag ... morewashers(1 now damaged see note in bold below) however the two that are in the reel are fine like new. This reel is truly like new inside and out. Only thing I can see wrong is some marking on the inside of the leather case and a small nick near the U on the reel seat(See pictures) The nick may have occurred at the factory, I don't know. I was asked about the dimensions of the reel today. The diameter of the reel is 3 3/8" and the width of the spool between the end plates(without taking it apart) is 1 1/4" I am so mad at my self. After taking measurements and putting the reel back in the case. The reel foot hit one of the cork washers and snapped it in two. I thought I should tell everyone. The drag on the reel is awesome from free spin to"I can barely pull it out. I would consider taking this reel to fight large trout. Salmon, strippers, bonefish, whatever. It is made to be used in the salt if needed. Please read the catalogue info for more info. I am an honest seller. And my goal is to put these rods and reels back on the rivers and streams to be used rather than collect dust. I try to find good quality product and take high quality photos to let the buyer kno

JVH REEL Antique Julius Vom Hofe Fishing reel. This is a scarce fly reel model. Looks great. Has a few issues. Foot marked 2- otherwise unmarked that I can see. The issues are the foot has been soldered on one side as seen in the pics. The clicker does not work. The hard rubber on the rear plate spins inside the german silver outer ring. I think the hard rubber may have shrunk a bit over the last 100 yrs and it just doesnt seat as well as it did. I thought about putting a bit of epoxy on the edge to secure it but I thought I leave it alone since I didnt want to ruin anything. There are no cracks in the hard rubber. I did clean it with soap and water but it has not been polished or scrubbed. You are buying it as is- my description is very accurate. I think I have pointed out its flaws well. Please study the pics. Buyer pays shipping of $8.00 ... morefor the USA lower 48 states. More eleswhere. Check out my other auctions! Yes, I combine shipping whenever possible!
here for the sale a scarce Kosmic Reel. Althought the company maker is uncertain. I believe this reel was made by Julius Vom Hofe and US Net& Twine Co, which was bought out later by Montague Rod& Reel Company. If you look hard enough on the front of the reel you can see the name"KOSMIC" stamped in the hard rubber. Page 160 of the 1904 Montague City Rod& Reel Company catalog shows the reel with some slight variations. And they have a number 937 reel. It's specifications are: 150 yard reel. 1-3/8" pillars, with 3" diameter plates. 93x series is listed as their finest quality Multiplier, which I would take to mean it is probably a 3:1 gear ratio. This assumption is made because they list a 94x series as a Quadruple. These series were made in 80-100-150 yard sizes. These reels were offspring of the Kosmic series ... moreof reels initially thought to have been made by Julius Vom Hofe. And then by USN&T. The 937 sold for $15 in 1904. This reel has a nice brown chocolate colour and is in excellent working order. I believe it is made from german silver.

Vintage Julius vom Hofe Size 2 German Silver& Hard Rubber Surf Tournament Reel is in excellent condition. The reel has a free-spool lever and spins like a top. The reel has an aluminum spool with a balsa wood arbor. The reel has adjustable spool pivots and external oiling hole. This is a scarce version of the Julius vom Hofe salt water style reels. Don't ask me why the spool has a German silver cage around it. Cause I don't know. But, it looks really cool. See photos for condition.
