    Bought one of the red Penn Peer 209's off Ebay, never been fished much, no scratches or chrome missing. Paid $17 for it, with shipping, $25. Bought an almost new Penn 209...the new model at a pawn shop, paid $30 + tax for it. A new Penn 209 sells for around $59, though you can get them for less online and on Ebay. $45 is, at a minimum, $20 too much for a 209 the age of a Peerless. Offer $20-25 for it, only if in very good condition, and if they refuse, walk.

For me to pay more than $20 for a 209 that age, it would have to be one never used, especially in salt water. $20 is probably the max the reel is worth if its been used, but is in very good condition.

    I don't think I would pay that much. If you are going to use it, you could by a new 209 for about 45.00.
