That '78 seems like a good price!

Cool old '78.

I forgot to mention, the ones I'm watching for are all with Jake 2 strokes, except maybe the Javelin, and they're all early 60s. Since I passed my '49 Bantam and '52 Queen on to another collector, the '49 King is the only reel I kept. My other Jakes are early 60s., I'm looking to keep the collection in the same vintage.

I attached some photos I copied from a 1961 Jacobsen brochure of the pieces I'm watching for to the original post.

I looked at a Javelin @ a year ago, yes here in FL, but I could not find a piece on it that didn't have a rust hole through it. One of the few times that I did not buy something...
I did go down the road a bit and find a "Snappin Turtle" mower the same trip, so all was not lost. :p

I've got an eye on one of the Snow jets in the Green Bay area. If it's still there in a week or so, I may give them a call as I'll be going passed there on my way to IL.

A few years ago I ran across a Snow Blitz out in IA, but hemmed and hawed around and missed out on it.

I might stand just a good a chance of spotting Big Foot up here in 'da U.P. before I run across a snow blade, rider unit and Javelin. But hey, I keep looking for them all, including Big Foot.
