Edward Vom Hofe Restigouche Salmon Reel 423 4/0


An excellent Edward Vom Hofe 423 single action 4/0 reel set up for RHW. Serial Z322. 13.2 oz. Excellent used condition. Some corrosion staining on the aluminum foot, a bit of minor screw head marring, and some micro rash on the German Silver protective bands (both the foot and the bands should polish out nicely). The owner's name, who was a frequent guest at the St. Marguerite club on the Quebec north shore, is engraved on the hard rubber side plate and highlighted in red, as well as the date of 1931.  Everything else on the reel is in perfect mechanical condition. The hard rubber side plates have no imperfections. The spool, serpentine handle, and reel foot are aluminum. The double pillars, protective rims, on-off button, drag selector and oil cover are German Silver.  The reel foot is stamped "423" and "4/0" and the serial # Z322. The reel packs into a leather case stamped "E. Vom Hofe, Maker, 97 Fulton St, N.Y." and "4/0" on the back strap. The front buckle strap is broken and the case could use some T.L.C. to soften the leather. More information about the original owner is available upon request.

Your shipping estimate will be calculated at checkout and if you have any questions please contact us. Please note the buyers are responsible for any applicable import duties or fees that may levied. Due to the importance of packing items carefully please allow up to two weeks for arrival (depending on how busy we are) though we certainly do our best to get items to you as expeditiously as possible.

Unless otherwise noted, all items come with a 3-day inspection period during which they can be returned to us for a full refund (provided that they are in the same condition in which they left our shop).
