Additional information from the current owner of this reel:
The reel is easily switched to RHW by flipping over the shuttle. If you have proper screwdrivers and are confident you won't booger the ebonite ... but such surgery is better left to Joe. And this reel is more of a Lefty than you might realize! It's a "leftover" from Joe's original bench-built D-IIs. Pre- his short-lived retirement. Before Delores discovered Hermes handbags and made Joe go back to the grindstone. This particular D-II is numbered, and its spool is the original assembled style with bronze arbor.

Reel weight 5.85 oz. Spool width 7/8â". Capacity is 60 yds 20# Micron plus a WF6F. Designed for 7 1/2 - 8 1/2 foot bamboo rods with 5 or 6 weight lines.
