This is a rare white handled ST. George circa 1917, it has the early smooth brass foot which is full length. The spool is the rare shallow drum core associated with dry fly fishing and fast retrieve.
The reel is pristine with 80% original black leaded finish, no spool wobble or line burns, there are four almost invisible cracks to the original agate of which only one is detectable by the finger nail test of which is detectable at 1O'clock. A great reel for a collector or user alike.
Stamped inside S4, and 4 also stamped on the spool.
