As it appears to be a Princess evidenced by pink, I would suggest that it would/should be a 100 AP.  Did they make a Princess that was not marked as AP or BP?

Al, yes I do think they did make the very first Princess model which was not marked as AP or BP. I posted pics of my 100-A Princess under the Princess board. Also, if you look at the reel pictures posted in the gallery, you can see Matt W. a few years back posted a picture also of a 100-A Princess that looks like mine except his is in better shape. From what I have seen in pictures and actual reels, I really think Johnson started selling Princess reels by making a Century 100-A all pink and putting the name  "Princess" on the front cover to get it out on the market. I don't think they did this for very long however.Then I think they they switched to putting the name on the side plate on AP models. I think maybe they kept the Princess name on the front cover also on the AP model at the start but quickly took it off and just left the front cover plain. While I have seen a few of these Princess 100-A reels come up on Ebay, they are few in number with the AP and BP models being more prevalent in the listings. I will post pictures of my AP and BP models on the Princess site in the near future.
