Right hand wind
The break handle is invorine,
Rare brass auxillary break
Has the original full length ribbed brass foot which is very unusual, this is one of the very first ribbed foots I've ever seen applied as this normally happens in 1928.
Everything is in full working order
This reel has wear from normal use. Great condition considering the age.
No cracks or line burns, no wobble to the spool, lovely dual bearing.
This reel was made for one year only which is why it's so rare to find.
