This was the very first version of the legendary Mitchell 300 we all know and love! To us the rarest and most valuable in the original form one of which is this one pictured. This reel, affectionately called "The Mitchell", was first manufactured in 1939/40 in very limited quantities. The last two photographs is also a true first version but was professionally restored. We thought you'd like to see what these looked like when new.

 

The most obvious features you will find on the first version is; Made in France is not on the housing, no paint primer which caused significant paint loss, a round anti-reverse knob and a Rosewood handle knob which could have been exchanged through the years.

 

No LH (301) 1st versions were produced. Their box is currently under study and will be completed soon. For a lot more information on this reel, please look at our First Version Study under Studies.
