Hardy Perfect 3 1/8" LHW [SOLD]


A gorgeous Hardy Perfect 3 1/8" in Left Hand Wind (!). Very good original condition with 75-80% of the leaded finish in tact. This is the pre-1932 8-pin frame with a probable manufacture date of the mid-to-late 1920's. The agate line guard is grey. Stamped "duplicated Mark II". The riveted brass foot has been lightly dressed. All of the geometry is consistent with the correct left hand wind, however, there is no retention screw provision in the spindle back plate. I have no explanation for this, though it is probably the reason why the drag is set up on the "light" side. I suppose this makes the reel the Hardy equivalent of the 1924 "inverted Jenny" stamp! Supplied with a Hardy pouch not original to this reel.
