jlslavey,
I'm not a Mitchell 206 collector, but from the sites "Models" link at the top of the page, it looks they didn't go into production till 1973. I believe that in 1971 all the different models went to the serial number beginning with an alpha character. The one at this link begins with a "G" on the reel seat, so it should have been produced in 1977.

I don't know if your looking to buy a 206. If you are and plan on using it as user reel. Be careful I bought a couple for users, and wish I didn't. They have a plastic bail bumper, that break easily. You have to buy new old stock, and they are very brittle.

May your lines always be tight, Don
