Early 1900s Reuben Heaton star backed wood fishing reel, made in Birmingham England. It is stamped with patent # 13388/85 for the brass lined back to prevent warping of the wood. There is a second patent stamped on the line guide that is difficult to read but appears to be #18868 and a third patent number on the line guide that cannot be read. This type of reel was probably used for trolling or salt water. The condition is excellent.
This is a large reel measuring 7 1/2" X 2" with an additional 1 1/2" knobs. Weighs 2 lbs. 6.5 oz.
