Default Pflueger Medalist - Unknown Size??

Hi all,
I have recently been given 8 Medalist fly spools and need an outside casing for them. The spools are fairly old and there is no serial number or series indication on any of them. Any idea how I might go about finding a reel casing for it? Oh ps if there's another term for the "casing" I keep referring to please feel free to correct me.
Here are the dimensions I can provide:

Diameter of spool: 3 in.
Width of spool: 15/16 in.

From what I've researched these are all Pflueger 1495 spools BUT I'm not sure entirely...any ideas???
Thanks!

Sam

Those spools fit a 1495 (or 1595) frame
You can buy a new, imported 1495 almost anywhere... at Cabela's they're around $25
Depending on the age of the spools, you may want to match them with an older American made reel
.... ebay.... but expect to spend more than 25 beans
Those spools will fit either the American or the imported frame... up to you
