I can't find anything on here resembling a serial number. It looks a lot like the 1941 a saw a picture of but for all I know the 1941-1945 Penn 80s looked the same.

Anyone who knows from looking at this or can direct me to where I can find a serial number it would be greatly appreciat

I think you'd be hard-pressed to differentiate that narrow date range.
Odds are, any reels assembled and sold 1941-1945 were built from parts stash on-hand, with no critical wartime materials available to make new (esp metal) parts.
Demand was very small, with most fishermen in uniform.
You can find a Big knowledge base for Penn conventional reels on ORCA

I was being dramatic, I collect antique radios and I can tell you Zenith made a set in 1941 that had a plastic chasis. It turns out my reel is late 40s and the bakelite handle was the dead giveaway.


I appreciate the ORCA reference
