Appraisals: A useful appraisal
must be based on, at least, pictures and a thorough description,
including both cosmetic and mechanical criteria.
No one can provide a valid
appraisal based only on
a model name or number.
The best I can do under such circumstances is to alert
you that your
reel might have exceptional value.
Please email pictures in .jpg format, if possible, and try to keep them
at sizes of 100KB or less. Please use
"Antique Reel" as the subject in all email.
