J.W. Young / Modarcom - 3 3/8" Pattern 14A - Red Agate
For sale here is a JW Young pattern 14A in the 3 3/8" size, branded for Modarcom - London. Made in the mid-late 1930's, prior to Modarcom's move from London to Kent in 1939. The reel features an unblemished red agate line guard, ebonite handle, duplicated engageable pawls and the rim mounted tensioner works as intended. A very tight RHW reel with a pleasantly narrow, 0.56" spool. One pawl rivet has been replaced professionally, and the smooth brass foot may have been shortened at some point, but not offensively so (foot measures 2.37"). Priced with these considerations.
