Hardy Perfect 3 5/8" Fly Reel w/ Red Agate

For sale here is a pre-WWII Hardy Perfect with red agate line guide. 3 5/8" diameter. Right hand retrieve. The ivorine handle is stiff on its post and needs to be freed up by a competent reel mechanic. The tension regulator works as intended. Nice leaded finish. Smooth brass foot is unmodified. The red agate line guide is crack-free. While the agate bezel insert is somewhat unusual, I cannot state definitively whether this was a custom replacement at some point or whether it was done at the factory. The patina of the bezel and the insert match exactly and the fit seems perfect.
