Hardy - Perfect 3 1/8" Fly Reel - 1912 Check, Red Agate

For sale here is a 3 1/8" Hardy Perfect fly reel with 1912 check in excellent original condition. Fine red agate line guard is unblemished and crack-free with a hint of line burn on the outer bezel. Full length smooth brass foot (2.9"), dark gray leaded finish and crazed ivoroid handle grasp that has faded to a pale yellow. Nickel silver retaining screw and strap-over tensioner. The highly prized 1912 checkwork is mechanically without fault, and the tensioner works as intended with lovely range. The leaded finish is maintaining beautifully for a 100+ year old reel. 4-cusp spool fits perfectly with no end-play, the reel is tight and ready for service. A worthy example to fish or collect. From the collection of Per G. Brandin.
