Well, so far, one person replied and quoted me $1200 to get all three reels!!! Kinda out of my price range...especially for reels that will be on a wall. LOL Guess I'll keep looking.

Well, here's what I've come up with so far...

1969ish Pfleuger Medalist and 1930ish Pfleuger Progress...niether of which is valuable, but since they are simply for display, value was of much less importance than asthetics. And I think the Progress is a beautiful reel, and the Medalist screams "60's" ay least to me...LOL

Now the 94 reel should be super easy to find and maybe the most expensive of the 3 is the bad thing. But should be lots to choose from.

Here is a link for some online classic tackle dealers:

On-Line Classic Tackle dealers? - Collecting Bamboo Fly Rods - Welcome to the Classic Fly Rod Forum! - The Classic Fly Rod Forum - Message Board - Yuku

And here is a link on dating Pflueger Medalist reels:

Medalist history on Web? - Classic Reels - Welcome to the Classic Fly Rod Forum! - The Classic Fly Rod Forum - Message Board - Yuku

I'm not sure you're going to be able to nail down an exact year but you can definitely get in the right decade. If you want a 30's medalist to go with that 60's medalist you should be able to find one in decent shape for $100 - $150. A 90's medalist should be much cheaper. They're still made, just not in the US. You can place a wanted to buy ad on the classic rod forum and you'll get several offers. I just bought one with that method and I think I got about 6 offers.

Here's a shot of mine. The 30's version had a metal spool release cover, metal drag adjuster, round line guard, amber handle and nice sculpted pillars. A beautiful and bullet proof reel.
