Hi all,
First time poster, loooong time 300 user. I continue to use the two 300's passed down to me. While looking at the gallery images of the 3rd version I realized that I had the exact same reel new in the same blue box. I'm able to add one factoid to the body of knowledge out there. My grandfather purchased this reel for my dad on July 6, 1953. Dad left for the Army soon after and never used it. I know this exact date because of my grandfather's curious habit of writing the date on everything he purchased. So, this reel with this style box was available in CT on that date. I'll post a pic once I figure out how.

Cheers and happy fishing
CTFisher

CT, :sSig_welcome4: to the Mitchell Reel Museum!

Sounds like you have a very nice 3rd version...Is there a serial number on the back of the body or on the bottom of the foot?

Again, welcome to the Museum.

It seems that the biggest problem for new picture posters is knowing that the picture needs to be sized to no more than 850 pixels wide.

Regards,
Ted Lanham

Good afternoon
I've attached an image of my 300 and box set at 800 pixels. I hope it shows up. The serial number B21633 is on the back of the housing.

Very, very nice. Thanks for sharing.

I particularly like the blue lettering on the tray.

JF.
