A nice Edward Vom Hofe 423 Restigouche salmon reel in a 3/0 size. 3 5/8" diameter with a 1 7/16" spool width. Weighs 13.1 ounces. The reel is in excellent overall condition. Hard rubber sideplates are excellent as is the serpentine handle, the roller pillars, etc. Aluminum spool. The reel foot is nickel silver and has been dressed to round the tips for modern reel seats. Also the top edges of the foot show signs of a file. This was likely done with the foot on the reel, as there are some small scratches and scuffs on the nickel silver rims in that area. This is the only real condition issue I can find. The foot crossbar is stamped "423" and "3/0" and on the end "U185", indicating a 1928 manufacture date. The reel has the 1896 improved tension drag. All the screws are present although a few of the screw heads are a bit chewey. The oil port is stamped "Edward Vom Hofe, Maker, N.Y., Pat, May, 20.02". The reel packs in an excellent unmarked leather reel case.
