This is a rare 1895 model, it has a beautiful face plate with a raised centre (one of the early brass faced perfects) It's personally inscribed 'C.B.S.' Has a full length brass foot, has the dished spool with four line cusps, has an ivorine handle. The frame has no line burns but has a little pitting on the face plate side of the frame, a great reel to use, no spool wobble, nice and tight. Turk's head adjuster and check spring are all strong and usable.
Has a lovely honest patina.
All in all a beautiful reel to own.
