    Default How to Identify Age of Pflueger Medalist?

    Hello all!

    I recently got an old Pflueger Medalist and I'm trying to find out when it was made. From what I've found online, it seems to be from 1939 but was wondering if anyone on here would be able to confirm or know how I could confirm.

    The model is a 1495 1/2 and has the circle line guide along with a metal center medallion on the spool and 6 rivots around it.

    Any advice would be appreciated!

    Wow!

    Thanks guys! I looked at the first link that spm sent before I did my post and I wasn't sure if that was a legit source or not. I prefer to have multiple references before I jump to a conclusion but it's tricky at times.

    Looks like I scored a 1939 model! Pretty pumped that I was able to find a good price on something pre-WWII and in pretty good condition!
