The UNID Files #6: The Case of the Bizarre Abu Reel

The UNID files are back after a short hiatus for the Hurricane with UNID Files #6: The Case of the Bizarre Abu Reel!


Ron Kotch recently found an Ambassadeur reel that is unlike any I've seen before. As ABU is one of the most collected companies in history, it is very rare to find an ABU mystery, but this one is certainly that. Here is Ron's email to me:

the reel is a free spool reel with 040801 on foot, not sure what the plastic side plate is for, it also has a red button on that side  which has a small screw in the center ,any help would be great, thanks for your input. Ron






It is certainly a strange reel! I've never seen anything like it...Anyone with any information on this can email Ron at ronkotch AT yahoo DOT com.
