For sale here is a 3 3/8" Hardy Perfect with Rod in Hand aluminium faceplate, from around 1900. 1896 check with strapped tension adjuster in good working order; original brass foot, unmolested; nice white ivorine handle and cup. Slight amount of spindle play and line burns to two pillars - see photos. Centre screw isn't original, but does what it's supposed to. There is an apparently original, machined groove around the outer rim of the check plate, with no obvious purpose - if anyone has similar, or knows its purpose, we're curious to know.
