We are not mind readers and can't place values on something we can't see and know the condition off. Check ebay for similar item in similar condition.

I know you're not a mind reader. I not high tech
and can't do photos. I just need to know if it's
anything worth saving before I throw it out. It
was left with a bunch of other reels in the old camp
when my father in law died at the ripe old age of
95.

Can not find information on a Pflueger Templar 450. The number 450 probably is not a model number and probably the line capacity of the reel. If 450 is the line capacity, than it would be a deep sea reel. Worth maybe $30-$50, but not sure what you have, nor do we know the condition. These were expensive when first sold. Here is a 1932 ad.

Don't throw anything out. One person's junk is another's man treasure, especially here.

Susan, the 450 is line capacity. On the head plate should be a model number. On eBay now there are several models like 1419 3/4, 1420 1/2, and a 1898 which looks to be the oldest model, maybe.

Don't pitch it as it might be worth a good price, depending on it age, condition, and rarity. Jim

Thank you for the old picture. If this is of any
help it also says Williams on the thing that you
turn. Susan

Thanks for the advice. I checked it again and found
that it also says Williams on the metal piece that you turn to reel the line in. I tried to send a picture but
it didn't work. I am so computer illiterate. It's my age
I guess. My daughter forwarded the picture to me but
I couldn't send it to you. Susan

Susan, you're not too old as I'm 70, Ron is in his mid 70s, and Gene is in his mid 80s. If your daughter sent you a photo, it is in your computer somewhere, probably in your e-mail. Download it from there to your photo library. Then click to reply and at the bottom of the reply box it will say "Attach Photos". When you click that it will take you to your files. Click on your photo library, click on the photo you want, then click submit. Good Luck, Jim

Susan, I think a reel like yours just came on eBay today. Here are a couple of photos. Do they look like yours? If so, I think it is probably an early model and could be worth a bit. Jim

Hi, This is Susan again. Thanks for that picture. It is
so close to what I have except it says pflueger Williams with a straight grooved line underneath and then an
indented circle with the word oil. Also, it doesn't have two wooden things . It has one and a small round
one. The scalloped edge is not scalloped but looks
more like a star with six points. I can't send picture
as it keeps asking for an email. Thanks again for your
help.

Susan, Please post pictures of your reel. That is the best way to solve it. If none of us know many of us know O.R.C.A. members or have accesses to their wealth of info. Paul

The Templar first appeared in the 1924 Catalog. Williams is the name of the adjustable drag system, and yes....it was named after Ted Williams.

Hi, I am glad that we were finally able to get the pictures to you. Can you tell me anything about them.
Such as, should I take them to Goodwill or hold on
to them. Is anything worth keeping?
Thank you for taking the time. Susan

If you lean toward collecting, then you have a classical piece of history and I would say, keep it. However you may elect to make it available to a collector that will appreciate it. Either way, it is your decision to make.

Thank you for your response. Do you know any
collectors that would be interested. Susan

Actually, Most collectors would have that model as they are not scarce on the market. You might try your local Craigslist or even E-bay.
Sorry, can't be of more help
