Hardy Contracted Brass Face Perfect 3 1/8" Fly Reel


For sale here is an extremely scarce contracted model Hardy Brass Face Perfect fly reel - 3 1/8" diameter with 1896 check and all three logos on the winding plate. The patina of this brass face as well as the logo clarity are simply stunning! The leading on the spool and frame is excellent. Cosmetically and functionally the reel is in original and excellent+++ condition. Nice and tight spool/spindle fit. Full length original foot. Ivory handle spins freely. The tensioner works perfectly. Four cusps on the spool. Matching stamps throughout. One ball bearing missing? You can decide from the photos. Don't miss out on acquiring this reel -- I will venture to say that any collector would be very lucky to find another one in this condition.

Shipping Information

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.

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.
