(1998 Penn Catalog)
Early 1960's models of the Spinfisher series were green, blue, brown or black. Green seems to be the color seen the most in the older reels, with white and silver cosmetics on the handle/drag knob/spool. We think the blue and brown models might have been special orders for sale at large department stores at the time. There was an intermediate black/silver release, then the black/gold Z line came out.
