Ocean City Reel Boxes

Ocean City Reel Boxes

OC Boc Guaranteee
This is the 1st style box Ocean City used for its mid priced and economy saltwater reels. It has a straight colored wide line through the middle and pictures of the Ocean City free spool reel at all 4 corners. Its a very beautiful box with lots of character. They used this style box from about 1924 to 1929. There are no catalogs that have been found for this time period so figuring an exact year for the reel would be impossible. I do have an ad from 1930 that shows the “New Chelsea” model so this reel box must predate that.
