REEL: In very good condition, with NO cracks, chips, or repairs and retaining a nice silvery lead finish. Complete with original blood red agate (with no cracks or chips) ivorine handle (small chip on the corner-see picture) caged spool, silent check, strapped rim tension screw, telephone centre latch and full-length un-filed brass foot with two holes being drilled at some time in its life. There are no makers details on the reel but it is clearly with the letter “D”
Please Note: the spool is double ventilated with large and small holes and from what I can see it appears to have been done at the factory as it is a professional job.
This is a very rare Dingley that hardly ever turns up especially with a red agate and a genuine left hand-wind and silent check.
