Hi Uncas,I would love to put up some photo's for you but I haven't got a clue how to do it.
Thank you for the information on serial numbers, I will check and let you know.
The rod weighs 3 5/8ths oz a deep mahogany brown and it does glow ( great )
Serial no S606395 it has two stripper guides on the bottom half and 8 snakes on the top half
including the tip top.
The tying's are a lighter brown tipped with white and the basket weave threads in front of the hook keeper, and a chocolate bronze down lock reel seat.
What year of manufacture do you think?
Uploading pics if you have them on your PC is easy.
You can edit your post, then click on the Attach Files button, or you can click on the Insert Image icon on the top menu. Then you can just drag and drop your jpeg picture files using an Window Explorer right onto to little window which pops up.
Drop me a PM if you want more info.
