Not an Ocean City. My bet is that it is a Montague reel. It looks like a Montague Pacific. Could be a trade reel?

I would start my research by looking up a Montague Pacific reel and go from there.

Montague's reel factory was in Brooklyn NY so between the guys here thinking it's a Montague reel and the "New York Club" reel name, it's very likely.

Not an Ocean City reel.

Every OC reel I've seen has the freespool lever in a square shaft, and mounted higher on the side ... between "10:00" and "11:00".

 

What's it say in the bottom of the reel foot?

There’s only a number on the bottom of the reel foot , 300.

Montague. As per a quick google. Didn't have time to do a really though analysis.

Google montague pacific free spool 300. I guess the "New york club" was a different variant/trade reel as previously suggested..

Can somebody clarify this for me. Ocean City bought out Montague in the 30's? but both had Bronson as a trade partner correct?

And Bronson owned J.A. Coxe. :)
