Greeting Alin,
Welcome to the Mitchell Reel Museum.
Your pictures didn't post. Could you try again, and size them to less than 750 pixels. Sometimes, it will work better that way.

Regards,
Ted Lanham

Alin,
The reel looks to be a 5th version 300 that was produced from 1955 to 1958 based on it's features. The sn number looks, to me, like ?560832. This being a 5th version, that would make the first number a "1" dating the reel to 1957. It looks to held up pretty good to be near 60 years old.
Regards,
Ted Lanham
