The varnish is very good. The 13 1/2" half wells grip is lightly soiled. The all-cork reel seat is mortised and has an oxidized pocket cap and ring. The pocket cap is die stamped "Paul H Young Co, Detroit-Mich" in the cartouche. Please note: there are two angled slash marks in the cane on the wrap flat just below the serial number on the butt. One of these has caused a crack line to show in the varnish so there may be some movement in that facet. In addition, there is a short seam and an edge chip just in front of the grip. Other than that the rod is straight, good to go, and has the original bag and tube.
