Serial Number (SN) B29598 is a good example of their first experiment with a full bail. Made in c1950 during the 3rd versions, it was sent out as a Pilot or test model to only a few choice distributors and not sold to the public. The reason was that during this time, Hardy held the full-bail patent. It has all the components of a 3rd version except for the rotating head as you can see in the pictures.

SN 190572 (c1953) is a good example of their new full bail that was sold to the public after a deal was made between Mitchell, Impecco and Hardy allowing full bails production starting in c1952. The rare black and silver sticker is Garcia's first but soon changed to yellow and black.

SN 472839 (c1954) is a very nice Left-Hand (LH) or a right-hand-wind model soon to become the Mitchell 301. As in the 3rd versions, the Mitchell brand name was still being engraved inverted or upside-down. The paper Garcia sticker has fallen off.

SN 608370 (also c1954) in among the last 4th version models soon to become the Mitchell 300. The famous “300” is still not engraved on these reels but Garcia as well as other distributors first started placing their stickers on this version. On all of these, if you remove the Garcia stickers, they will look just like the European versions.
