For sale here is a beautiful 4" wide drum Hardy Perfect salmon fly reel with 1912 check. Much of the original leading remains. Gear teeth and pawl are still very sharp and the tensioner (with Turks locking nut) works great throughout its range (at the lighter setting it is still pretty tight, so if you like no tension at the lightest setting, look elsewhere). No wobble or end play to speak of. Professional engraving exists on the winding plate and spool as shown in photos. Ivorine handle spins freely. Slight line burns to pillar/frame. Stamped "5" throughout. Spool retaining screw is original but slightly buggered, but this doesn't prevent getting the screw off and on. Smooth brass foot is full length and unfiled.
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.
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.
