Good evening,

I have posted a similar question before but not got much response. I have a Mitchell 487 sea fishing reel in very good condition. Black with Gold lettering circa early 80s I think. No box, threw it away and simply started using the reel.. Not planning on keeping it for 30+ years. Anyhow, anyone advise where I might best advertise this for sale..? Is it simply via ebay or gumtree. Any advice re age and possible value would be appreciated.

Cheers Paul

Hello Ratcatcher, I think your best bet is to go to the schematics section of the museum and match it up with one of the models there. Your reel is a brother to the left hand wind 486 . As for value you'll probably have to peruse through e bay and try to see what one in the same condition as yours is trying to be sold for. It seems they were made for about 20 years. Best of luck , John in Pa.
