Hardy Brassed Bronzed Platewind Reel 4" with Case


A very nice Hardy Brass Bronzed Platewind reel, 4" in diameter which favors RHW. Made from the 1880's this size was discontinued in 1910 and was second in price only to Hardy's ebonite and German silver offering. A very fine example of this model, this reel has normal cosmetic wear and patina that you'd expect of a reel this age, but is in superb condition with a straight foot, a pleasing click and no defects that I could find. No lightweight, this reel clocks in at 25.3 ounces, and comes in a fine Hardy block case that is also in excellent condition for its age. A nice package here for a lover of early Hardy reels.

Shipping Information
We ship at cost to the buyer and in the majority of cases do so via UPS with full insurance and signature. There are cheaper options but our experience has been that you get what you pay for and that it's not worth taking risks when shipping what are often one-of-a-kind items. 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.
Other Terms
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). Return shipping is the responsibility of the buyer. If an item is returned, we will issue a refund within 10 days upon receipt. Refunds will be either administered by providing a check or, when possible, by canceling a credit card purchase.
