The Seascape was Built by Wallsend Engineering in Newcastle NSW, It came in 2 sizes, The Major that you have and the Minor with a narrower spool.
It was the first 6:1 ratio reel available for the High Speed Spin fisho's chasing Tuna off the stones with metal lures.
A Great Reel, Rough as gut's Aussie Enginuity and Light years ahead of it's time in the 60's and 70's, The Seascape was responsible for countless captures of huge Tuna and Kingfish.
Value? I have no Idea, but they were worth their weight in gold to many of the fisho's at the time
