The 6th version main determining factor was that “Garcia” is now engraved on the cover plate as shown below along with the same “Mitchell 3-0-0” as on the 5th version. The 6th version was produced from 1958/59 to 1967/68 and will have serial numbers starting in the 1880000 range up to serial number range 7900000. On very early 6th versions and for a very short period of time; Garcia continued to place their yellow & black stickers as you can see.


On both the 5th and 6th versions starting in the 1880000 serial number range; serial numbers were moved back to the foot where they remained through 1988/89. The one shown below with serial number 1912233 dates this reel a very early 6th version from 1958/59 which was the first year these were produced. Other changes occurred in the 2200000 serial number range when they moved the Made in France on the front of the housing to the rear.


Many other changes were concurrently made to both the 5th and 6th versions such as trip levers, anti-reverse levers, handles, drag adjustment knobs and baffle plates to name a few. More information on these changes will be given out as time permits. It’s important to note that you will find other distributor’s have their name and or logo engraved on this version including Arca, Albatros and Balzer. Pictures are being taken and will be added as time permits.
