This is a rare 3” Dingley perfect with phosphor bronze line guide. This reel is quite rare as it also has the perforated spool which is very rare on the Dingley Perfects.
Its stamped internally no. “6” on the spool , plate and the body. “Foster Brothers Ashborne” is stamped on the front.
The reel body spool , plate and functionality of the reel are in excellent condition. There’s no line grooves to the pillars which means the Phosphor bronze line guard is original at point of manufacture. The foot appears full length with a slight bend on one end with a hint of Verdi green corrosion - this will polish out.
No spool wobble, the reel is tight and functional and the tension adjuster works perfectly.
