This is one of a number of rare reels from a large collection that I have been asked to sell on behalf of a client, they have all been very well looked after and stored correctly.
In very good condition and in full working order, with no cracks, chips, line grooves or repairs. Consisting of original ivory handle, full-length unfiled integral brass foot, very good flat caliper check and pawl with no play or wobble on the spool or winding plate, open race with phosphor bronze ball bearings (maybe one/two missing) strapped rim tension screw, large and small perforated spool, rod in hand, enclosed oval and straight line logos. I have not cleaned, polished or oiled this reel, I have left this reel exactly how I found it with.
BLOCK LEATHER CASE
In very good condition and complete with the leather around the buckle, on the lid is neatly engraved with the previous owner’s name.
