: Old gear information, history, etc.

Hi all.
I just inherited 4 fly reels:D and I'm looking for some information on 2 of them.:confused:
One is called "THE INVICTA" and is made in England. It is a 2 3/4 " reel, and I can't get any information about it by googling it. Don't know if it's a collectable worth insuring or if it's just a run of the mill reel. Appears to be in very good shape other than a couple of scratches in the paint.

The other is a Laurentian #2 dry fly reel made by Larston (?) Machine Works in Montreal Canada. Same as above, it's in prety good shape and is a 2 3/4 " reel.

Anyone know anything about these two reels?
Thanks for any help.
