Very nice Vintage metal Casting Rod made by Shakespeare in the early 1940s. The fishing pole has a Shakespeare decal on it, and on the pistol grip handle where the reel sits , it reads "Made in USA..Shakespeare...Pat No. 2260204".

This 2 piece rod measures about  5 '  3 "  in length when assembled.  It comes with a brown cloth sleeve. The cloth bag is intact and has a label that reads " Shakespeare Kwik-Aim No. A 1564 Casting Rod ". I assume that this is the original bag for this rod... this is how I found it at the Estate Sale. If I am incorrect in this assumption, please let me know, and I will post your input on the listing.

The fishing pole looks like it was gently used. The painted metal rod is intact and sturdy, with a few little nicks in the paint. I don't know if the black collar at the top of the handle piece (photo 7) is supposed to turn, but it doesn't move right now.

Please look at all the photos for the best description.

This interesting piece was found with a collection of other vintage Fresh Water Fishing tackle at an Estate Sale in Long Island, New York. I wll be listing the other fishing items this week, and will gladly combine shipping if you are interested in more than one item.

I do not have a good working knowledge of Fishing Tackle, so please feel free to ask questions if I have left anything out.

International bidders please note that this package exceeds the size limit for First Class International Mail, and therefore must be sent via the more expensive Priority International Mail.

Thank you for looking...
