I purchased a Mitchell 300 reel today and I'm trying to figure out how old it is. The only markings on the reel are "Made in France" and "Mitchell 300". I did not see a serial number or any other number/symbol markings anywhere on the reel. From what I've read on this site, the very early reels don't have the "300" but have the number 5 somewhere near the foot, and the 3rd and 4th generation reels start to have serial numbers. Any thoughts?

Greetings MisterS,
Welcome to the Mitchell Reel Museum.

Check the back of the reel case. There may be a serial number on the back of it.

Regards,
Ted Lanham
