Hello,

I found yesterday in a lot of matrix (about 30 ) for publication of advertising photos (or other uses?) of fishing equipment in the fisheries magazines: 11 marked "garcia" of the size of the stickers for reels. Three different references.
You will be able to see the size in relation to the meter.
Just a new sharing of my finds
Christian

Christian, those are an interesting find...thanks for sharing...

The first Garcia wedge stickers on reels were about 1964. Do you have any thought as to the year these were produced?

Hey Christian,

Once again, you share a truly remarkable find!

Since you have not said otherwise, I assume your Garcia find was in France, which adds to the extraordinariness of it. I haven’t searched the MRM Forum for how much has been discussed about Garcia’s Mitchell (or ABU) reels'/lures' manuals/boxes/packaging having been printed in their countries of origin (versus the US), but there are some clear examples of that having been done.

From what I can tell, your wedges are 1-1.5 cm long. Is that correct?

Hey Sandman,

Could you clarify your date estimation for use of the Garcia wedge logo (whether for reel badges/stickers and/or boxes)? I am wondering whether boxes had the wedge logo prior to reels.

Please see my 2017 MRM post (as J Fishkat) about the Garcia wedge being registered as a trademark:
Garcia Wedge trademark aka sticker or logo

What is useful about a registered trademark document, is the date of first use in commerce, more so than the later approval date. “First use in commerce” documentation requires the product to have either been shipped or sold – advertising does not count towards that. So, Garcia had documentation of their logo for 1959-Nov as a wedge and 1960-Nov as a red wedge.

Warm regards to all,
John

Hello Sandman,
I do not know the year of manufacture of these objects, the lot includes objects from the early 1960s until the mid-1970s / 1980s.

Hello John
Y ou're right, the size is 1 cm, 1.1 cm and 1.5 cm
For the 1 cm reference 10 - 1 to 10 - 4
For the 1.1 the four are marked 5 - 11
For the 1.5 reference 15 - 1 to 15 - 3
All these objects were found on a flea market in France
Best regards
Christian

John, not sure I can further clarify my statement "The first Garcia wedge stickers on reels were about 1964"...I was referring to Garcia reel wedge stickers...the Garcia wedge logo was used long before 1964...the first i recall is 1959 on the black box lids...perhaps earlier in advertisements.
