This 45+ year old reel shows very little use. It is filled with non-stretch backing. One screw head on the front plate at 12:00 o-clock shows 2 small nicks. The Drag Lever shows some very slight wear. There are some other barely noticeable nicks on other parts of the reel. A facsimile of the Bogdan Care pamphlet is in the pouch.
