Mitchell 315 – 1958-1967 = 31,011 Units

 

With the introduction of this new round-body designed after the Mitchell 304 series; it incorporated the new spool, handle and anti-reverse lever design but still maintained the Planomatic gearing. The odd part is when the 314/315 was first released, the 304/305 changed the gearing to Cross-Wind. For more information, please see our schematics gallery.

 

Serial Number 056079 shows the first release Mitchell 314 C.A.P commonly referred to as the “Super CAP’ as first introduced in the mid-1950s. These also came in the 315 LH models not shown. The one shown was sold by Garcia but the only difference to a European model would be the Garcia sticker on the reel (missing) and as shown in the last picture of this Garcia Mitchell 314 box. The serial number is stamped on back of the Housing.

 

Serial Number 0396129 shows the last release Mitchell 314 with C.A.P still being molded on the Housing made in France in the late 1950s still prior to Garcia's name being engraved. You can see a slight cast change on the Housing when compared to earlier models. The serial numbers are now stamped on the foot.

 

Serial Number 1147563 shows a European release Mitchell 315. This release did not have a C.A.P housing and was engraved either Mitchell 314/315 or Garcia Mitchell 314/315.

 

Serial Number 1952636 kindly shared with us from the collection of Phil Waller shows another European release Mitchell 315 complete.

 

Serial Number 3200241 shows a Garcia Mitchell 314 later release in the 1960's. The easiest way to tell an early from a later release is by the Anti-Reverse Lever that is now much narrower.
