For sale here is a Hardy Perfect 1912 Reproduction Limited Edition Fly Reel, the 4 1/4" diameter reel that came in a set with the other two sizes, 3 3/4" and 4" (these two are not included with this sale). The 4 1/4" reel has a spool width of 1 1/2". Left hand retrieve. There were only 200 of each reel made. The reel features an aluminum spitfire finish face plate, ivorine handle, turks head locking nut, smooth brass reel foot (No.3), and interchangeable spare reel foot (No.1) to fit modern rods.
The reel is in unused condition but has some type of straight-line mark on the faceplate as shown in the last photo (perhaps from being compressed against the spare reel foot while housed in its original presentation leather case). The photo makes it seem worse due to holding it toward a bright light source when snapping the photo.
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.
